STAY CALM AND THINK CLEARLY.

The next few months of your life will probably be the most stressful of your life.

How is this period of time going to define you? Angry, worried, fearful, stressed totally? How?

This period will end. There is no doubt of this, it will end.

It is imperative though that you get thru this strongly and bravely. You must, therefore, do what I have been saying at training for years, and that is:                                                           Apply ruthless energy to dealing only in facts.

You must become a fact based thinker. 

Determine what are the facts, and act on them. you MUST strongly discipline your thoughts not to becoming emotional. This will weaken you, and define you for the rest of your life, as someone who failed when the BIG test came. Stay strong Kufu-do members. Rational, logical, fact based thinking throughout this period of time.

Training will resume when the restrictions are lifted, and Kufu-do members will be back at training enjoying ourselves again. We will all come back having not been beaten by the negative energy that is defeating so many people.

Remember the ABC of mental strength.

A. Accept and understand the facts - You don't have to 'like' the facts. But the facts..... are the facts. Accept this is happening and you are in it. Like it or not.

B. Behave in a manner that best increases your chance of success. Punching a hole in the wall - no. Rolling up in a ball and crying - no. Losing your temper all the time - no. Constantly thinking your life is over - no.

 Get on with it - Do something positive - Yes.

C. Control upsetting thoughts - Stay rational, not emotional. Stay logical. (Read that again, then read it again.)

I once again remind you - call if you need advice. I am at the Kwoon daily with my counselling work, which is continuing as normal, and my phone is on after hours.

Continue to watch this page for updates and in the meantime,

STAY CALM AND THINK CLEARLY.    

 

STAY STRONG

24 MARCH, 2020

Our Kung-fu training is temporarily halted due to the Government restrictions. 

Over the coming months the world's population will endure a lot of mental stress. Any Kufu-do members experiencing feelings of anxiety or depression are strongly encouraged to call me so we can talk thru it. I am still here for members even though the Kwoon is not operating. 

Members are encouraged to still maintain your fitness. Twice to three times per week put yourself thru a class like workout, simulating an opponent to strike. Keep your forms up to standard, and your one steps. When this all ends we can all get back to training and not have lost too much of our Kung-fu skills. 

Brown Belts, Black Belts, and Red Sashes, are encourated to maintain your internal exercises daily. Now more than ever you need to stay energized and balanced. Red Sashes are also encouraged to continue with your eye charts, and still communicate with me over your progress. All other Red Sash "home training' is still on, communicate with me by SMS.

Stay positive Kufu-do members, we will all get thru this, and our training will get back to normal in the coming months.
