Bring On The Simians!

It took me over a year to do it, but I've finally unlearned the mistake I ingrained in muscle memory the first time I learned a Tai Chi move called Repel the Monkey. Kinesthetic learning comes very hard to me--all I have to substitute for kinesthetic intelligence is persistence. Fortunately, I've got a lot of that. Once I figured out how to pivot on a weighted foot, several other moves I'd really sucked at suddenly sucked way less.

So bring on the tamarins and tarsiers,the macaques and mandrills, the gibbons and the great apes. I can repel them all!
