SHU HA RI
Three Stages in Mastery
守 SHU Protect
I practice the form, I protect the form.
I respect the form. I repeat the form.
In this process, I learn the principle.
The principle is the heart of the form.
Without a solid form,
nothing can be held.
破 HA Break
I detach myself from the known,
Breaking the form of basic, with trials and errors,
I discover what works for me and what doesn’t.
It is scary to be here.
But the principle I learned never leaves me.
I trust my soul and I evolve.
離 RI Transcend
I see I have wings now.
The wings, gifted by the divine.
With the colour of my soul,
With the patterns of my skills,
With the power of my principle,
I fly with my wings, with the divine.
