Useful learning mindset



Thanks to the Japanese, the martial art of Kendo and my thoughtful Sensei Marleen for the concept of :

Heijo-shin:

A disciplined state of mind which can respond to change in a situation in a calm,
normal manner, without becoming agitated.

This could be useful for students in class, and for teachers being asked to make class "webpages" by next Tuesday ;-)

p.s. nice hair-do Mr Woody ;-)

Mr Woody, you look yellow in this picture. Cool armour-stuff-thingy though. I used to do Judo but I don't do it anymore. I can't remember why I quit.

Kendo dosn't look like a very calming sport. Trying to smash someones brains out and screaming across the room. When I did Karate it was fun but also it was very disciplining even though I didn't know it was happening
