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?


  1. That is very nice the connectedness with a tree, I read and will do a post about huging a tree it is in a martial art. Forget your arm, use it normally, your body is just one with all its parts.

  2. thanks for the tips and information..i really appreciate it.. aikido dojo
