Weekend quote – Philip Guston

Studio Ghosts: When you’re in the studio painting, there are a lot of people in there with you – your teachers, friends, painters from history, critics… and one by one if you’re really painting, they walk out. And if you’re really painting YOU walk out.

Weekend quote – Ish Levi from Barcelona

1st quote img

Know that men become what they do, and their heart and all their thoughts always follow their deeds, be they good or evil.

And even a complete villain that thinks evil all day long, if he will pour his spirit and try and persist in good deeds, even if it is from the wrong causes, he will immediately lean into goodness, even if not intending so, and with the power of his deeds and actions he will suffocate his evil inclination because hearts follow deeds.

And even a complete zadik, a righteous person, with straight and pure heart who is seeking good thoughts and occupations, if he will always be involved with bad deeds – maybe because the king forced him to do so and told him to be busy only with bad work, if he will fully occupy himself all day with that art – he will one day turn full circle from righteousness of heart to become completely bad.

Live knife seminar and sessions this week, 12-17.3.2017

The Sunday session in Jerusalem dojo will not take place because of the holiday.

This Friday, in Honbu dojo, we will conduct a live knife seminar. Registration is closed and all the places are full. Because of the extraordinary level of violence, there will not be any video.

During the week we will practice throws from the Tsuki Nagare drill.

Weekend quote – Richard Bach

“Why is it,” Jonathan puzzled, “that the hardest thing in the world is to convince a bird that he is free, and that he can prove it for himself if he’d just spend a little time practicing? Why should that be so hard?”

― Richard Bach, Jonathan Livingston Seagull
