Fight Family has a whole new meaning for me after this video my father just sent me this morning.

I think we all wonder what parts of us are like our parents and it’s funny to move through a day, a week, a month where you’re drilling through stuff and you occasionally stop because something feels so familiar in what you are doing and you notice these similarities are either something you have inherited from your mother, or something you have inherited from your father.

I have always found all activities that involved the body to fascinate.  It seemed so amazing to have the ability to do such a wide variety of different kinds of physical activities by having the ability to adjust and adapt, just with my own body to the different kinds of feelings of different art forms of movement.  It’s so much fun, discovering all the different kinds of feelings our bodies are capable of.

I do love explosive power, theres no other feeling like it on the planet.  I think this is also why I was such a strong jumper during my figure skating days, I loved that feeling of zero to a thousand that I could create with my own body’s ability to release.  That’s the real power of the body, it’s the magnitude you can only feel in release.

I’ve always assumed that my non-fear of stepping in the ring had to come from my father.

This video dad just sent me this morning has completely changed my way of thinking.
