HAPPY NEW YEAR

here we go again , a new year is starting, so Best wishes and Happy new year to my readers 🙂

I only have one wish for this new year : I will do what I can for it to be one of my best training years.

I have been lazy and felt sorry for myself long enough now, after the passing of my mother I have not gotten back to my real life and this needs to stop right there.

So the plan was to set new training routines and stick to them , I know that training is playing a  big part in the way I feel mentally and physically and there is no excuse or short cuts.

Train  = feel better in your body = feel better in your head= feel better about yourself.

I know exactly what is working for me and these past years have just proven that when I don´t train as I should,  I fall down into a black hole and bad things just keep happening.

I feel I need to prove myself I can take myself out of the bad circle and breathe new air .

So let´s make 2019 a good year and all the best to you all 🙂

 

 

78 years old

 

This is the age Bruce Lee would have been today . I can´t help but feel sad every year thinking what great things he would have accomplished by now.

Yesterday there was an article in the paper. It does not stop to amaze me how people come with new theories about his death 45 years after his passing. What the article was about is not worth mentioning,  they did not even have their facts right,  so I won´t talk about it. After 45 years I don´t believe in new so called theories , whether I believe in the official story or not is not to be discussed here, people should believe what they want but what is important here is what he did with his life.

So today is a celebration of the date of birth of Bruce Lee, the greatest martial artist of all times. I had the chance to visit the hospital where he was born and even stand outside the door of the room. This was in 2010 at the Chinese Hospital in San Francisco, and this is during this trip  that I met his family and some of his friends , this was  one of the best experiences of my life.

JKD SWEDEN ACTIVITY

We have decided to maintain our group as it is and therefore will not take any new student for the time being, our instructor Mikael is not taking any private students or class.

The reason is that we want to focus on our own training and put our energy on our own evolution .

As I wrote before our group is a non profit organization and we simply don´t have the resources to develop a proper training class for new students.

 

Happy Chinese New Year

February 16th, 2018 officially begins the year of the Dog.

“The Dog is the eleventh of all zodiac animals. According to one myth, the Jade Emperor said the order would be decided by the order in which they arrived to his party. Monkey, Rooster and Dog were in another country, helping a god defeat evil spirits. After, they set off to the party together. Because they arrived at the same time, the Jade Emperor went by the order they met the god in the other country. Thus, Dog became eleventh.”

“Honest and loyal, Dogs are the truest friends and most reliable partner.”

Happy New year from JKD Sweden

27/11/2017 = 77

Bruce Lee would have been 77 today . I can´t help but think it is such a pity he is not around anymore. I feel the same way every year and this since my childhood, this is very strange how I always have that same feeling.

A lot of people wish the same, I guess we only can imagine who he would have become and how far he would have gone.

 

this is one of my favorite quotes and certainly one of the most accurates for today :

“The key to immortality is first living a life worth remembering” . Bruce Lee

He has certainly accomplished this , his short life was so rich and has given so much to the world.

Never replaced , never forgotten and if you ask me , never outmatched.

Today is a time for a celebration of a great man, immortal you shall be .

hello friend

I have been back to the gym for a month now and it feels very good.

Yesterday I even said hello to an old friend, the heavy bag ! Now that feeling is something else,  first I felt rusty , slow and the technique was not good, but  after a while and repetitions my body started to remember how it´s done and it got better.

I filmed myself just to check the form and I was pleasantly surprised , it was not as bad as I thought.

I trained all punches by themselves and combinations, footwork and kicks, I tried to get some flow in it and at the end I did a round with full power just to know if I could handle it and especially if my shoulder would take it.

I was very tired afterwards but very statisfied, I got back that training feeling .

And there is more good news, I don´t feel the pain in my shoulder today, it means I can handle it ! of course I am expecting muscle sourness later in today but that is just part of it .

I will take it easy with sparring as this is when my shoulder got injured but there is no reason why I can do all the rest 🙂
