In sharing Zhong Xin Dao, I am often asked if I continue to practice the arts I've previously studied. The answer is no and the answer is yes. In October (2014) I will turn 50 and will have been diligently training for 40 years. How can one erase or even separate out the effects of such duration written on the body and mind? It's not possible. My previous practice is deeply inscribed on my perceptions, views and approach to life. According to this I must say, "Yes, I still practice". However, I choose to empty my cup in order to learn.
