Warrior Body, Buddha Mind

Warrior Body Buddha Mind - not a new site (been around a year or so in its present location - but a treasure trove of information regarding Yau Kung Mun, Bak Mei Pai and other arts.
I like the way that Sifu Garry Hearfield has researched the roots of the various arts, getting to the core methods of them.
I have several of their products, and find them to be extremely helpful in either a) introducing me to concepts I didn't have a grasp on, or b) exposing me to a different way of looking at what I currently train in.
Stop by and check them out.

Situational Awareness - September 2012

Seems to be in the forefront of the news I see lately - here are two articles (same site) dealing with the topic.
When Things Go Bad - deals with mental preparation, before a situation develops.
A Practical Guide to Situational Awareness - discussing how to achieve good SA without going into the 'paranoia' stage.
As always; read, study and apply the techniques that work for you.
Enjoy the links? Drop me a comment and let me know if we are providing relevant content for you. Thanks.

This post is a bit 'off' the normal Yau Kung Mun pathway, but ....
This is from - a site about free diving.
Although this deals with sharks in particular, it can be used to illustrate the importance of awareness and its importance to our security/survival.
The author looked at the surroundings, the influences of geography on his location, and made a decision - based on his observations. Later, he was told there was a high-incidence of shark attacks there.
Do the same with your destinations - grocery store, new harbor to explore, etc. Conduct a quick observation/assessment, decide if things are in your favor and then act upon the decision.
Just wanted to illustrate that the concept of awareness is not limited to security issues. It is a tool we can (and do) utilize all the time.
