Respond to each individual
according to his individual makeup.

The tall: get inside.
The short: keep away.
Work at your range.

The southpaw:
maintain position
outside his lead leg.

The anxious:
side-step his crazy advances,
picking him apart as you do.

The cautious: take centre stage.
haunt him like a bad dream,
pressuring him relentlessly.

Adopt the styleless style.
Leave no scope for prediction.
If he is thinking, he is not working.

Enter his mind. Break him.

Climbing Mount Snowdon - Video

Video diary of my walk up and down Mount Snowdon yesterday:

I am thinking of going back in a month's time.
To sing a song on Snowdon.
Facing the camera, frozen beard and all.
For charity of course. I ain't no singer!

Connecting Unconsciously

Is it weird to increase in respect for someone because of something you see them do or say in a dream? I find that I do this. Not sure if there is any basis for doing so?

A man who has convinced himself he does not exist,
how do you convince him that God exists?
Such people exist!

After a month out fasting,
yesterday I returned to sparring.
And what a fight, as it tends to be.

From the moment it hits 6,
time to leave the office,
to the second it strikes 8,
time to step into the ring,
my head brawls.

"Too much work on",
"Not feeling well today",
"First a few lighter sessions...
to get back into shape",
the voices ring.

Right until the first punch is thrown
and the negative energy quashed...
for another week.

Good thing my mum is away for a few days.
She doesn't like me wearing red!
