Sport and games

I have a friend who states that he doesn’t like sport. He sees it as useless back and forth (but he also loves games, which I consider a sport, I think he means like rugby, soccer and stuff). Anyway, it’s obvious that he wasn’t very good at sport, otherwise you probably wouldn’t say this. If you’re somewhat good at sport, you can appreciate it for what it is, a way to test and implement strategy against other teams or individuals. That’s why I love both playing and watching sport. If it’s something harmless like touch rugby or soccer, I love to play it (is soccer harmless?), and I love to watch rugby for the different styles of play clashing and the different strategies involved.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR

Hi, I’m Tim Bunting AKA the Kiwi Yamabushi, a New Zealander who became a Yamabushi Ascetic in the Dewa Sanzan mountains of north Japan. I’m part of the Yamabushido team, and we host life-altering Yamabushi training on the Dewa Sanzan (website link). People come to us for the ultimate mindfulness experience, to reach the next level, or simply connect with nature and themselves.


I’m on a mission to summit all 100 Famous Mountains of Yamagata Prefecture to spread the splendour of this fabulous location, and in dedication to all those who lost their lives out in nature, including my father.


On my daily blog I post thoughts of a practicing Yamabushi that I hope people can use to better themselves and live as fulfilling a life as possible.
