His Dark Side: Training with a Kung Fu Master

The Master was less interactive that day.

I had grown accustomed to him walking over to me, mapping the corrections of my movements by performing them president as I watched. The practice of Kung Fu forms required the same attention to detail set forth by the martial ancestors. And I would have to work harder to prevent my own biases interfering with the expression of the moves. I couldn’t tamper with the movements. Even the most delicate changes occurring as a result of my own idiosyncratic movements were gently corrected. The Master was patient, tolerating my ineptitude and forgetfulness, always willing to provide reminders of missed details.

I warmed up and went through the forms one-by-one. As a departure from our usual lessons, he made no corrections. Instead, he sat in his chair, and I could hear him wheezing, his bronchioles fighting to oxygenate his body. His cough sounded wet, as if dampness had crept down his throat, into his lungs.
At that movement I realized the strength of my bond because I immediately felt concerned for his health. The Master smoked a pipe which he would pack with tobacco whilst watching my movements as I darted and spun across the garden. His coughing was to signify a gradual decline in his health, which would eventually leave me without a guiding light.
