Dead tree wins
I practice my jo strikes on this dead tree when I walk in the mornings.
My tree is helping me develop power. I can tell when I hit with my whole body
and when I just use my arms. It feels definitely better when I use my whole
body. When I hit with just my arms…the tree wins. ;o) My arms absorb the shock
and my hands vibrate with pain. When I use my whole body I don’t feel anything but
connectedness. With a dead tree…how about that?
