Painful Journey

From this week, I shifted to new project and to new office premises. This in turn has increased the distance from home to office by an additional 13 km. The overall 23 km would have been manageable if the road condition was good.

But the 11 km of broken roads, with surprise pot holes had its effect on me from the first day itself. On reaching home, I was having back pain with a much higher severity than the normal ones.

So, I opted for the company bus service from next month. I haven’t used the bus service for office travel in my entire career. So, this is going to be fun. I have already started plans for spending the travel time in a best enjoyable way. The best plan should be to revive my long lost hobby of mine permanently – Reading.

I don’t know how things will work out. But lets wait and see.


Getting Idle

I am sorry. In the last few months, I have been very lazy to write few words together for my blog. No excuses can covet the laziness I have been engulfed. No no more blasphemy.

Last two months was more of a routine. To my Kung Fu classes in the morning, then to work and back. I have been in afternoon shifts for almost 45 days. So, mornings were pretty idle. Cut the time, watching movies, browsing the net, reading some pdf’s etc. I was much relaxed of work pressure by then. From last week, I moved back to the morning shifts. So, I am back again to the time jammed days. The work was idle, so was my mind. I was going through few self learning materials and reading. Apart from that, the life was more of a monotone.

I am concluding the retrospect and not making any new year resolution to continue to be a avid blogger. But, I will try by best to write bits and pieces every day or two.

Discovering New Limits

Every morning, I feel that I have attained the limit of my physical endurance. The next morning makes me realize that I was one step behind yesterday.

Being healthy and sorting out health is much complicated adversaries. The most fundamental behavior of human body and mind is to stay at the maximum comfortable level and resist anything that affects the comfort. More often, when I try to get up early for a short jog, or at the least a walk through the lanes, I am often winded down by yawn and sleepiness. The body fights its best fight to draw me back to the sleepy hollow. But, did the body understand that the comfort level it can attain by sweating out at the maximum in the early morning could last for ages. But I think, it is satisfied by the cozy bed and the interim pleasure.

But, I have already decided to invest in long term health and I am have been successful to be regular on that regime for the last 15 days. Believe me, for a lazy guy like me, sticking to a schedule that needs a early wake up, extreme hard work making the body demand is more than a dream. But, I lived that dream. It would be better to say like,’ The dream is real for me now’.

!0 days into my ‘Shaolin Fist Kung Fu training’ and oh man, what I feel? I feel strong and confident and building the will power to achieve more and more after each impossible training routines that is becoming possible on each day ahead. I am very much impressed and fascinated and got involved into this old traditional Chinese martial art. Even in movies, I liked Kung Fu and Kick Boxing more than other martial arts like Karate because of this style, grace and beauty. I found the flowing of Chi in Kung Fu more elegant than the Katas.

Shaolin Kung Fu refers to a style of the martial art that originated at the Shaolin Monastery in China. However, the term has evolved, encompassing fighting styles and forms that are not necessarily associated with the monastery. The Southern Shaolin style of kung fu fighting features low body stances and emphasizes hand-to-hand, close-quarter combat. Southern styles is more hands, close quarter fighting, builds extremely strong bodies, great for self defense.

Southern Kung Fu masters focus on building body strength and teaching effective self-defense techniques.

More important in martial arts as equivalent to style is to have a right and apt master Sifu. The Sifu must be extremely talented and at the same time must be a good teacher. And I was lucky and blessed to learn this art from a master of the right Blend.

Master Sifu of Shaolin Fist Kung Fu International school is a perfect master. He understands each students strengths and weakness and imparts and concentrates on building the same. The regular classes includes strength building, body conditioning, Kung Fu, meditation, Yoga, gymnastics, self defense techniques and weapon training. A complete and authentic training in an ancient martial art form. With such impression, I don’t mind advertising the school through my blog. Anyone in Chennai who is interested to improve physical fitness, learn Kung Fu from A-Z come and join the school. The school details are as below:
