Tiger – Confidence
Stage 1: Fearlessness – “Not being afraid of who you are!”
True fearlessness is not the reduction of fear, but going beyond fear.
The first stage of learning requires that we overcome our feelings of awkwardness and inadequacy when learning something new and to rise to the challenge.
Learning complex stick patterns and movements requires retraining the brain, our nervous system, muscles and our co-ordination.
This retraining takes time, patience and perseverance. It requires us to face our feelings of inadequacy and fear of not being good enough.
As we cultivate determination and perseverance through the harmonisation of body movement and partner work we become competent in our use of movement and energy and we also become confident within ourselves, who we are, and what we can achieve if we set our mind to it.
