Master Ni asked about you. When I said you (Chris) were still in Thailand, he said “Good” very enthusiastically.
When I told him you were still practicing the forms, he said “Good. Forms very important. Many stop practicing forms and then can’t return.”
He said there are two purposes for practicing: one is to review of the forms. He said this is most important. The other reason is to get better, but this is secondary to the review.
