A Challenge In Concentration & Awareness | Tempe Martial Arts Classes

This video is sped up 10x.

We're having a friendly competition within I Liq Chuan to do our 21 Form as slowly as possible, so I grabbed my camera and headed down to my local park in Tempe and gave it a shot.

At usual speeds, the 21 form takes about 4.5 minutes to complete. Here I do it in around 22 minutes.

I actually found this to be an interesting exercise in attention and concentration. It was a challenge to really be THERE at every point, to maintain fullness throughout and to recognize all the qualities without relying on muscle memory and habit.
