September Workshop Coming Up

The White Lotus Combat System will be conducting a series of seminars and workshops this month.  The focus will be on Basic Skill Development for Guarding & Striking on Friday night.  The weekend will also entail Intermediate, Advanced, and Mastery development levels.  Each level is important, and has an associated set of standards, which are tangible and measurable.  It’s through understanding the standards associated with each course, that a practitioner can quickly excel and gain effective fighting skills.

It’s important to remember that fighting is more than how much weight you can lift, or how fast your punches may be.  It’s even more than how big you are, or how scary you look.  Yes, there are more considerations than that.  It’s also important to understand that a certain number of considerations can actually demystify any combative event.  Not only can it help remove ambiguity and fear associated with these events, understanding these components will help you survive.  For more information contact Robert Graham.

Your Perceptions Matter

When students are first introduced to the principle considerations of thecombative process they are asked to absorbaccept, and adopt the associatedlabelsdefinitions, and concepts imparted to them. These initial stages of thelearning process are very intellectual in nature – the process of acquiringknowledge. Once these tasks have been completed, the students are introduced to a series ofexercises that enable them to experience processing the principle considerations. It’s at this stage of the learning process where they develop their first perceptions of the principle considerations. In the White Lotus System, these initial perceptions are referred to asbaseline perceptions. Although important in the initial stages of experience, these baseline perceptions can impede the students’ progression, especially if they insist on cling to them. With this in mind, students are encouraged to further the development of their perceptions whenever possible. This conscious expansion of understanding and experience enables them to utilize the principle considerations of the combative process in a greater and more meaningful way, thus increasing their odds of survival. The process associated with the initiallearning of the principle considerations can be found in the course titled “WLS 010 / Principle Considerations of the Combative Process”. The students’ ability to further their baseline perceptions occurs as the principle considerations are brought into context with one other in the following courses. A practitioner’s inability to perceive things in combat, as they really are, is a serious problem and often leads to their demise in battle.
