An interlude

Lee: Kick me.

[Student attempts kick]

Lee: What was that? An Exhibition? We need emotional content. Now try again!

[Student tries again]

Lee: I said “emotional content.” Not anger! Now try again!

[Student tries again and succeeds]

Lee: That’s it! How did it feel?

[Student thinks; Lee smacks his head]

Lee: Don’t think. Feeeel! It’s like a finger pointing at the moon.

[Looks at student who is looking at the finger; smacks student again]

Lee: Do not concentrate on the finger or you will miss all of the heavenly glory!

[Student bows; Lee smacks him again]

Lee: Never take your eyes off your opponent… even when you’re bowing!

[Student bows again this time keeping his eyes on Lee]

Lee: That’s better.
