When I first started taekwondo (less than a month ago), I was immediately *more* able to sit in traditional zazen postures.
But within days, I found that I was less able to do so than before.
I've taken a couple of yoga classes now, and am learning a few things that should help balance things out a bit, but it's slow going so far.
I've noticed that taekwondo seems to be reconfiguring my basic structure (muscles, connective tissue, posture...), and I'm going to have to re-learn some things that I could do with relative ease just recently.
But in a general sense, I feel stronger, lighter, and in vaguely better than before.
I wonder where all this is going.
