Making It Look Easy

When a Karate expert demonstrates, people often say that "He makes it look so easy!"

I have heard that many times during my Karate life. But I have only recently realized that the saying is not quite right. The assumption is that the expert is doing something hard and is just making it look easy. In fact, because of his understanding and skill, what he is doing is easy... to him. He makes it look easy because it is easy.

Now it would be very difficult for an untrained person to move the same way. That would be hard. However, if a person were to train and study hard enough and long enough, he should be able to move the same way, easily.

My Sensei has a way of making everything look very easy and fun!
