Many are afraid of being vulnerable. But is vulnerability really a bad thing and something to be fearful of?
When we punch, for example, we actually put ourselves into a deeply vulnerable and off balanced position; but this same body weight shift that causes vulnerability also enables us to get the most power into the technique.
In our personal lives, without vulnerability we never step out of our comfort zone…we never grow…we never connect to others. When we make ourselves vulnerable we actually open ourselves up to life.
Can we be fully alive or powerful in both our Hapkido and our personal lives without a degree of vulnerability?
I would be really interested to hear your thoughts on the relationship between power and vulnerability.
