"May your life go well!"

My first-ever glimpse of so-called "dharma combat." It's not quite the same as the combat I've read about (Wikipedia talks about that style here), but it was interesting all the same for what it was. It reminded me of footage I've seen of an aikido master facing student after student, demonstrating his mental and spiritual poise. It was also reminiscent of the laughter I've heard in Korean dharma halls during dharma talks. Religion is nobler when it remembers to laugh-- both at the world and at itself.
