Excellence is an art won by training and
habituation. We do not act rightly because
we have virtue or excellence, but rather we
have those because we have acted rightly.
We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence,
then, is not an act but a habit.
                        Aristotle
"The world is a dangerous place to live; not because of the people who are evil, but because of the  people who don't do anything about it."
                               - Albert Einstein 
Every morning in Africa, a gazelle wakes up. It knows it must run faster than the fastest lion or it will be killed. Every morning a lion wakes up. It knows it must outrun the slowest gazelle or it will starve to death. It doesn't matter whether you are a lion or a gazelle. When the sun comes up, you better start running.
                                     African proverb
At every moment of our lives, we all have one foot in a fairy tale and the other in the abyss...

An adventure is only an inconvenience rightly considered. An inconvenience is only an adventure wrongly considered

Reason is poor propaganda when opposed by the yammering, unceasing lies of shrewd and evil and self-serving men. The little man has no way to judge and the shoddy lies are packaged more attractively. Robert Heinlein (Assignment in Eternity)
The unforgivable crime is soft hitting.  Do not hit at all if it can be avoided; but never hit softly.  ~Theodore Roosevelt ~
The personal, as everyone's so fucking fond of saying, is political. So if some idiot politician, some power player, tries to execute policies that harm you or those you care about, take it personally. Get angry. The Machinery of Justice will not serve you here - it is slow and cold, and it is theirs. Only the little people suffer at the hands of Justice; the creatures of power slide out from under with a wink and a grin. If you want justice, you will have to claw it from them. Make it personal. Do as much damage as you can. Get your message across. That way you stand a far better chance of being taken seriously next time. Of being considered dangerous. And make no mistake about this: being taken seriously, being considered dangerous, marks the difference - the only difference in their eyes- between players and little people. Players they will make deals with. Little people they liquidate. And time and again they cream your liquidation, your displacement, your torture and brutal execution with the ultimate insult that it's just business, it's politics, it's the way of the world, it's a tough life, and that it's nothing personal.
Well, fuck them. Make it personal.'
Quellcrist Falconer, 
Things I Should Have Learned By Now Vol II 
Especially when preparing for actual combat, these few seconds of preamble allow you to settle your equilibrium, to draw upon your self-confidence, to face without emotion that sword point which threatens you, and to allay the first involuntary movement of anxiety which, in such cases, the strongest nature must endure for a moment. Moreover, you have been able to entrap your adversary in a comprehensive glance of observation, and to draw your own conclusions from his position, from his handling of the sword, and from the general way in which he offers battle.

Happiness is an imaginary condition, formerly attributed by the living to the dead, now usually attributed by adults to children, and by children to adults.
                     Thomas Szasz
I have now made you as wise as myself upon the subject of moving the body and the limbs, which indeed is all the mechanism of swordsmanship. A few words before we separate. Why have these positions and these movements been chosen, been universally approved of by the civilised world? The reply is because they are intuitive and instinctive. See how the races that use the knife naturally seize it with the right hand, drape the cloak round the left arm, and, under cover of the body, prepare the weapon for a fatal thrust. " I'm certain," Shughtie said, " that they are wrong. Have the cloak if you like, it may always be useful, but hold your bowie-point to the fore as if it were a sword. Why, man, you've quoted Achille Marozzo, and already you forget hie principles. There are two common ways of using the knife underhand and overhand. Underhand is rare, being easily stopped; overhand, if you treat it as I would, may be received upon the point. An acquaintance of mine had a third way, which was not without its merits. He rejoiced in the sobriquet of ' Flat-footed Jack,' being, or rather having been, one of Her Gracious Majesty's hard naval bargains. The Argentine gargotti's not a bad place for knife practice. The Flat-footed in his cups would quarrel with hie own hat; hence many a difficulty. When cuchillos are drawn Senor Spaniard, old or new hemisphere, hae a silly habit of showing off. The world must see the curved beauties of his deadly blade. It's like the Tartar prince, who by herald informs the kings of the earth that they may dine, as he has finished his meal of mare's milk. And it's quite unlike the sensible Japanese, who, holding the scabbard in the left hand, draws hie sword with so little loss of time that he opens his man from belt to shoulder." A very old manoeuvre of the Italian and German schools, I interposed. " Well," resumed Shughtie, " while the particular Don was intent upon his gambado, Flat-footed Jack suddenly let fly at him a perfectly straight thrust with a common whittle some 6in. long, and worth when new 4d. He was only careful to put his thumb along the bone handle. Of course, every blow killed. I should be afraid to name the number of our countryman's triumphs." This was a long speech for Shughtie. I knew that he would not readily do it again, and resumed. Such, then, is the rule of the sword we will drop the knife - and it is based upon nature and truth, upon practice and experience.

"Laying down tricks in the form of wavy lines, circles, and cross-marks on the ground is an old African custom that came to America in slavery times. Spitting into the design activates it, and when the enemy walks over the powder, he or she is said to be "poisoned through the feet," bringing on a Jinx and creating Crossed Conditions that result in all-around bad luck and long-lasting illness."

- Musashi Miyamoto, A Book Of Five Rings (Go Rin No Sho)
The sentiment du fer is that supreme art of digitation which is to the complete swordsman what the touch of the pulse is, or rather was, to the old physician who disclaims the newfangled thermometer. It begins to make itself felt as soon as the blades come into contact. Essential to the highest development of our art, it is the result of happy natural disposition, of long study, and of persevering attention. To the hand it gives lightness and that indescribable finesse which guide the cue of the billiard player; to the passes it communicates quickness directed by an appreciation of the case which can hardly be subjected to analysis. It is that mysterious résumé of delicate manipulation, of practised suppleness in wrist and forearm, and of precision in movement, which makes the adversary feel powerless before it, which startles at the same time that it commands him. No quality in a swordsman is more rarely found in any degree approaching perfection. To say that I have not the highest admiration of it would be to set myself down in the lowest ranks of materialism -- as the world understands the word. But its very potency suggests the absolute necessity of providing against it when we find so rare a gift opposed to us.

This Documentary Presentation has been a long while in the making. Many thanx go out to Terry, Lee, Laci, Pete, Mark, Carla, Bob and so, so many more people for helping make this film the success that it has become upon the short film festival circuit and in the hearts and minds of people around the world who have seen it. This is not a training film per se, it is a Docu-project about a man's journey (Terry) and his quest for life's meanings and truths via the path of steel. (Ferro Veritas).  I am myself, the teacher.
Filmed in New York, Texas, Oregon, Hells Canyon, Sacred sites and more. The horse scene at my place (in the pasture) was impromtu, the horses sort of fell in with the whole vibe of the film. They "knew their roles well" ya might say. It is a different venue for me for sure. But it came out quite well, 
I am pleased and I think you also shall be pleased. JAK

Excerpt From the DVD
 Documentary.
By pressing or squeezing the sides of the fingers, according to your needs, you can affect both the emotion and the corresponding organ. This is how the fingers work:
......................................
    The thumb represents the element earth, the stomach and worry.

    The index finger represents the element metal, the lungs, the large intestine and the emotions depression, sadness and grief.

    The middle finger is the element fire, the heart, small intestine, circulatory and respiratory systems, the emotions are impatience and hastiness.

    The ring finger is the element wood and is connected to the liver, gall bladder, nervous system and corresponds to anger.

    The little finger corresponds to water, the kidneys and fear.
........................................................................
Massage the Finger in Accord with your current state of mind (emotion) to abolish and control such self hindering emotions!

Its history is full of folklore and legend, but here we only summarize it briefly: Until the Spanish monarchy favored among his subjects the custom to carry a sword, sometimes coming up to make it mandatory, they are not traces of navaja.
This is often done by the instructor holding the hands of the student as the jinn's pass through the finger tips or by pointing his fingers at their foreheads at the position commonly known as the "Third Eye" (Hinduism & Buddhism faculty of insight often associated with paranormal activity and Islamically position at which the soul (rou'h) extricates the body). The finger nails serve as motorways for the jinn's facilitating ease of entry and exit. Yet all this can be done while the instructor is some distance away from the student controlling them like a puppeteer or rather telekinesis, pulling students in or pushing them away with just a gesture. More convincingly, most of the time they are unaware of he's gestures and often looking in the other direction.

“Add in the idea of peng, which is internal ‘expansion’ and it drives up the suspension of the head, helps to root the feet and bows the spine and the 4 limbs in an expanded way to give the 5 bows and ‘frame’ the body in a soft and activated way that makes it very powerful and alive…”
During the daytime, we see shadow but do not notice light. During the night, we see light but do not notice shadow. A breath contains two aspects: “heng” and “ha”. (Once your skill is deep, you will be able to do this as a single breath, or with but an action of your navel.) One who is highly skilled in solo and partner practice will often unexpectedly utter these sounds. 
They have three principles:
     1. Make your internal energy comfortable, without the errors of forcing it or injuring yourself.
     2. Make your internal power course through your whole body without the slightest obstruction.
     3. Make the opponent become panicked, which causes his movement to become disorganized, his mind to become dazed, his advance and retreat to lose its effectiveness, and he is rendered unable to defend himself, giving you the opportunity to catch him off-guard. Therefore the two tricks of “heng” and “ha” are extremely useful and you will need to understand them. “Heng” is usually used when drawing in and neutralizing (inhaling). “Ha” is usually used when seizing and issuing (exhaling).

“It is believed that in the midst of a fight, a bull can find his own area of safety in the arena. There he can reclaim his strength and power. This place and inner state are called his querencia. As long as the bull remains enraged and reactive, the matador is in charge. Yet when he finds querencia, he gathers his strength and loses his fear. From the matador’s perspective, at this point, the bull is truly dangerous, for he has tapped into his power.” ~Tara Brach, Ph.D.

I shall embrace the darkness and make it mine.
I shall sleep the sleep of the ages and return one thousand years hence.
I will come from waters deep and ages past. My weapons antique and unworthy.
I depend upon you for aid, you will depend upon me for life. When called I will come.
When I come, I will bring the others and we will at last restore the balance lost. 
Bring the weapons of time to my chest and place them there upon me and step away.
Carry the tradition and bring ye tobacco. Make the mark so that dead eye's may see
We will thus know one another as brothers reunited and be whole again. Cool warmth.
Until then the road of mankind will become the new trail of tears. Each man will walk alone
No one will be untouched, all will carry wounds and the mark of the demon will be upon us.
 But fear ye not, retribution of the most divine manner shall appear. A new gate will open.
It will remedy this imbalance and return that which was lost in the far arena of tomorrow's dawn
We are all one family and thus the darkness will not - cannot prevail. I give you my word as true.
It has been my distinct pleasure to serve you all in this Kali-yuga and for now, my work is complete.

POWER HANDS
Keep the eye's high. Slow down, move slower than normal, just a tiny bit slower. Look close - scan, look far - observe. Walk slowly and deliberately. 
A toothpick, a cigarette, a lollipop or pipe adds to the capture of their attention. Giving a gateway for your intent to enter their sphere. First capture their attention without trying to capture it. Subtle. Move the head slowly, but move it as you use your eye's to target lock. You are not being invisible, engage. That is the point of this exercise. Engage, control & move on. A bandana, a scarf, a necklace of some type can then round this picture out nicely. Don't overdo it, be natural and enjoy the subtle effects you create as you go about your day. Ripples in a pond, reflections as reality.

Tip heavily if you are able. Tip any and all who may cross your tracks. The smaller and more useless they are, be sure to tip them and to add compliments to the tip as well. Small gifts of little financial consequence should be carried at all times. Given away as protocol and plan decides as a part of fates flow of luck she bestows upon those who know the great game and relish playing it. The items in your kit should be diverse. They are there as a distract and mind block when needed - for you to use as you will. Then your works are victorious but always undetected. This is best. When you tip someone with a small $$ gratuity, try to touch them as you give them the tip or gift. Any touch will do, a touch upon the shoulder is best. But it is sometimes hard to do. Work on your smile and postures, touch. 

This touch can either make them remember you or an event or it can make them forget - intent is your tool, touch is your bio-circuit connect & interface, the $ is the distract to have their "gates" lowered at your command & presence. Look at their eye's and smile with your eye's and flash them into hard mode at 6 to 8 sec. intervals. Do this as part of natural blinking to be undetected. If their posture is leaning or inclined towards you it indicates they are in your web. If the posture or behavior leans somewhat away, proceed slowly. They are not in capture mode. Begin again, engage - suggest and cause opportunity for a chance to touch them again. Just as an engineer designs plans for their latest project, you too "engineer" the behavior and thoughts of those about you. Physical and non-physical tools are used together - a symphony of success often ensues. 

Avoid shoes with little or no heel when you are seeking to engage and capture their will and attention. The idea is to glide when you walk. Be graceful, slow down a little. Move your arms gracefully - move the head in accord. Boots with riding heels are best for men. "Let there always be light under your feet" is the saying. The high arch and sharp heel provide a "window" of light beneath your every step. Those about you, those who watch you will see this. You will automatically be perceived as superior to the watchers in their own minds. In Mexico some use a metal tip on the boot to add the auditory effect with the light. With every step there is sound and light. Some will want to know or meet you. Some will want to slow you up and stop the energy. Be prepared for those type, just move on as they will be pushed back by the very light which they came to engage either for good or for bad. You engage the one's whom you can, the others will be automatically stopped from entering your sphere. You will just "KNOW" the right people to allow entry into your sphere. OK, a review then, so it's riding heels, glide when in motion, light beneath the feet, be graceful, a slower gait and the intent of a warrior-boss. By having self confidence you learn to confide in your own confidence as guide. Enjoy the show and away you go.

The gait or way you walk (and move) can tell a lot about a person. Each of us have a gait or a type of walking unique unto ourselves. The gait I refer to here is created by both how you walk as well as how your body moves when you walk. Be natural with your arm movements. Graceful timed motion of the arms add balance and poise to your actions. Know when to move and when not to move the arms. Your torso is separate from your legs (independent movement). The trunk of the body must ride the hips in graceful, complimentary action. Much like a horse and good rider, they appear as one. Yet bad riders will bounce about, fly up and down as they ride. The same applies for our own body. The trunk is the rider, the hips and legs are the horse. Learn to walk in a variety of gaits in order to tap into your higher abilities. These higher abilities once realized usually feed you into a secondary chain of abilities that must be explored and in some cases mastered in order to go further. In studying the gait I have taught many, many of you the secret of moccasin training as taught to me by Maestro Santos. To learn the gaits of power is no joke or game. These are Jedi-level tricks of the trade that turn the tables just like in the tales & fables. Learn to glide as you move. Learn to move incredibly fast (flash). Be at ease when you move. 

Tight fitting clothes are for action which is not intended to be seen. Nor is it to be caught up. Sleek / stealth. The loose fitting clothes are the apparel meant to be seen and to be seen in. There are reasons for both. Generally loose fit clothes and coverings are best. Avoid such clothing that children or youth are currently wearing. And unless intended (a reason) avoid wearing uniforms of any kind. But do have several "outfits" to fit every situation that life may send your way. Learn to blend in when you should. Learn to stand out and be noticed when you should as well. Timing is everything. The chameleon teaches us the lesson we all must learn at some point. Experiment, note the effects, devise your tactics. Clothes are powerful tools. If you do wear a suit, have it tailor made - just for you. You know, there are suits just for sitting. Other suits are cut just right and they are meant only for standing. A good tailor is worth their weight in silver. Spend the extra dime and have a suit custom built. You'll see what I mean pard! Impressive!

Decide upon three hand mudras, three postures and three transitions. Lower the voice by one octave. Learn more about the breath control of great public speakers and singers. Chants and cadence counting also serve the same purposes. Learn to appear and then produce chaos from the energy around you as an element of distraction. Watch the use of the left hand by those who lead. Understand the left hand's power and why you must use it.
