There are fathers, fathers of girls and fathers of 3 girls. I am none of those. My friend Dustin Valencia is the most impressive of those. He wouldn’t leave his girls in my care but since I am a writer, he asked me to come over and baby sit his blog while he’s out gallivanting overseas.
Dustin writes about family and relationships pretty regularly so I figured a story about martial arts made perfect sense.
Go check it out and let me know what you think. And while you’re there, look at the pictures his adorable daughters and read his blog!
Here’s a preview:
Enter The Dragon is one of my favorite martial arts movies of all time. Most people remember the classic fight scene in the room of mirrors with Han. But I’m more a movie quote fanatic so I always find lines that stick out to me and use them in my every day conversations.
In one scene, Bruce Lee is on a boat with another guy who is being a bully. He gets in Lee’s face and says “What’s your style?” Lee replies, “My style? You can call it the art of fighting without fighting.” He then proceeds to trick the guy into getting in a dinghy and doesn’t get in with him. The guy has to float behind the boat holding on to a rope for the rest of the trip.
Fighting without fighting. I love that line. I love that style. So much so that I incorporate it into my communication style.
