Beach Run

I always imagined how it’s like running on a beach. This evening I decided to head to the beach at Pantai Puteri, Tanjung Kling. Many years ago, there wasn’t beach here, the beach was man-made. I used Apple Map to measure the distance of the beach and it was like 4.2km two ways. The sand was…

不入虎穴焉得虎子(二)

之前写了一篇题目一样的博文,是关于创业风险的短文。“不入虎穴焉得虎子”这句话有挺而走险之意。在空手道(或任何武术)训练里,无论是防守还是攻击,只有把生死置之度外才能将「必杀技术」发挥极致。 今早利用工作间一段休息时间练习一下,突然想起日本冲绳岛劉衛流空手道教士八段佐久本嗣男(Tsuguo Sakumoto)先生的成名套拳:安南(Anan)。在视频的第36秒至39秒里,先生一手画圆圈、踏前一步、另一手一掌击出。他手画的圆圈其实就是和上地流的轮受手(輪受け)一样。另一掌可直击敌人肋骨、胃部、下巴或头部。这一手画圆、踏前一步一掌击敌要害,看似简单,难度可高啊。其中难度就是要把生死置之度外。正所谓不入虎穴焉得虎子。 这一手画圆、踏前一步一掌摧敌要害,可是空手道里杀伤力很强的技术。若能毕生锻炼此技术,肯定受用无尽。
