Arches are strong. Observe the cables of a suspension bridge, the arches under a Roman aquaduct, or the curve of a bow being pulled just before the release of an arrow.

Angles and straight lines are not as strong as arches. A tall straight tree will easily break from a strong wind.

When doing kata, cultivate the arches in your stance, in the position of your arms, in the motion of your whole body.
