This idea can go ‘way now.

In Hapkido, we say that the style is based on three principles: the circle principle, the water principle, and the harmony principle. (Which I’m forgetting the Korean names of.) I know some of their meanings, but I can’t claim to fully understand all the implications.

Now cast the spell of binding, the notion and the word that echos in my haunted head, without rhyme or reason, a perfect expression of the universal pattern:

I’ve got circles in my movements,
I’ve got water in my soul,
harmony in mind,
and steady breath control.
