I have been very fortunate in that I am being taught the art of living with vitality and good health. Yes the Chinese art ,Tia Chi Chuan (wu style)
I was lucky to service a carving knife aimed at my heart,in 2019 after a robbery gone bad inside Blue Route Mall. With no security present I was carrying my shopping on a Saturday afternoon. Just come out of checkers(incidently offered me a R1000 to not inform anyone,after the incident) when a knife out of my side view appeared. Thanks to my training I only lost part of the use of my left arm.
With no first aid for a good part of my experience, I was able to use mind over matter, stopped the bleeding ,meditated ,lit my Tabasco pipe and excepted death. Then 45min later, I was rescued by an ambulance and taken to hospital.
