Kung Fu for Philosophers

I thought I would share a link to an article, Kung Fu for Philosophers, that was shared with me earlier this week. The author, Peimin Ni does an excellent job of describing the true nature of kung fu and draws parallels between the Eastern philosophy that influences the kung fu mindset and more well-known Western philosophy to make the kung fu mindset more easily understood.

Kung fu is not just about the martial application and self-defense, but about achieving skill at any endeavor through perseverance and hard work as discussed in my article, “What is Kung Fu?“.

I recommend reading Peimin Ni’s article, it offers a lot of insight into Chinese philosophy and how it may be applied in everyday life.
