Sorry to disappoint, Peedee, but I'm not talking about CHI power or ninja magic.
I meant intangibles such as:
The Effect of Training on Personality - Not just confidence, but some of the skills you actually find yourself applying outside the dojo.
The Male/Female Dynamic (actually covered fairly fully in threads, but figure an article exploring it may be a good read)
Role Models - Male
Role Models - Female
- These two come up for two reasons: 1) I find there are a lot of single parents (especially mothers) in my dojo and the MA in general. The dojo tends to fulfill certain roles for their children, moreso than for the average 2-parent child.
The Effect of your Seniors - Attitude, Skill, Training and Intensity
The Fall From Grace - The eventual realization that your school/teacher isn't immortal/magical (you'll like this one, Peedee)
Those are only a few ideas in my head right now. Most of them aren't necessarily TMA depedent, but since most of my background is from a dojo, it'll have that flavour to it.
And I don't mind a good flame from our resident troll, just want to be sure the contribution is welcome before I put time into writing it...although I'd probably write them anyway.
