Well I was shown and did some practice of sinawali. Good lord. Nothing points out a lack of coordination and deftness with half your body then trying to coordinate two sides into the same activity. I have been doing it solo since practice and it takes so much concentration.. I find my self smacking my thumbs occasionally. When we were doing it together I managed to get into a nice flow with him but then my mind would go blank and mess everything up and have to start over again. So, how long did it take you guys before you were really smooth and fluid with it? How often did you hit your self when doing it solo?
