Know the smallest things and the biggest things the shallowest things and the deepest things- Miyamoto Musashi

As Miyamoto related his way of strategy to carpentry and building houses, he could now be viewed as 3D thinking, also as thinking outside of the box, as he developed his skill with the spirit of strategy without following a master but as a master Forman carpenter.

My Sensei was a carpenter and a very capable martial artist, very helpful to have realistic concrete skills to work with and to combine them with strategies and plans of action that go hand in hand.

Do you use strategy in your area of expertise to make a living and does it benefit your martial art strategies for fighting?

Does this work for you visa versa also?

Well, for me, my way of living is through the MA via owning my own dojo and being the Kaicho of the SKKA on a full time basis. So, I would say that my area of expertise in making my living is akin to my strategies for fighting; they work hand in hand!!

I use my training as a reminder of what my students might be going through. Anytime I get nervous, frustrated, or any of those other "feelings" that can get in the way of learning, I tell myself exactly what I'd tell my students. I also let them know that I still have similar experiences.
