Perfect Practice

Select the right mentors
Study your teacher carefully
Balance surrender and self-determination

Embrace change
Listen with openness
Practice daily those lessons most cherished
Never squander a lesson — Practice the whole art

Investigate apparent contradictions
Balance intuition and science
Practice with undivided attention — one-pointed practice

Observe yourself with detachment
Challenge perceived limitations
Always observe critically even your most basic movement

Keep clear objective
Know what you are attempting to accomplish
Art is expression
Know what wants to be expressed
Accept your performance today without allowing it to limit future performance
