Service Notice

Having toiled at my Midtown office until 3:15 a.m. last night — and with a joint-locking seminar to attend this evening at the kwoon, and a long mixing session coming up on Saturday — published content may be rather thin these next few days. I apologize: in particular, I owe the estimable Deogolwulf a better explanation of why our lack of free will, as traditionally (and implausibly) imagined, isn’t such a big deal — but there are only so many hours in the day.

    a” joint-locking” seminar just has so many possibilities–I don’t know, though , whether to tease you about something that is very important to you.

    Tease away, Jeanie — I can take it. In this case it was a fascinating class with a visiting jiu-jitsu sensei. Jiu-jitsu, which can trace its origins to Chinese methods known as “chin na”, is a nice synergistic pairing with Hung Gar kung fu.

    We all got twisted into human pretzels; I’m aching all over today.
