Hands and Knees

Today I worked in my yard. For those of you on the mainland, it was a sunny day in the 80s. I actually got a sunburn!

Anyway, my yard looked pretty good, but when I got down on my hands and knees I could see some weeds. I could not see them when I was standing.

It is sort of like that when you teach Karate. When you watch students moving in the dojo from afar, things might look pretty good. But when you get up close and pay attention to each individual movement and body position, you might see errors.

You have to get up close... for weeds and errors.

Respectfully,
