ZEN+ : Helping you Stay Young and Age Well

I’m not ashamed to admit this…

By Marcus Santer

So I finally got to watch the new Croaching Tiger movie on Netflix last night.

No spoilers.

But enough for me to say that as much as I enjoyed it…

It wasn’t a patch on the first.

Oh well.

But as I watched it I couldn’t help being reminded of why I love the martial arts heroes and stories from the past.

How come?

Because they were just regular dudes and dudettes who developed extraordinary skills through years of hard work, discipline and practice.

And it’s also why Batman is my favourite of all the comic superheroes.


He’s an ordinary dude with great skill honed through years of hard work, discipline and practice.

Now sure…

A lot of the shizzle you see in the martial arts movies and comic books is clearly ridiculous.

Although I’m not ashamed to admit that it was many years before I realised this.

I blame books like: ‘Secret Fighting Arts of the World’ by Robert W. Smith writing as John Gilbey.

I was one of the many fools who believed it was a work of non-fiction.

Not realising it was simply a piss take of all the tall tales so popular in the martial arts.

Though it was many years before I found that out.

Hey, if ‘Wanting to Believe’ is a crime – I’m guilty.

But I’m older and wiser now.

And I’ve yet to witness anything supernatural.

Though I still believe that:

Can result in amazing achievements.

Especially when it comes to living a longer, healthier and happier life.

Bye for now


P.S. Many years ago I watched a guy ‘zapping’ a cloud…

Using just the power of his Qi.

It was embarrassing.

After about 15 minutes of focusing and posturing the cloud – kinda – changed shape.


My fellow spectators congratulated him.

But I couldn’t help feeling that clouds tend to change shape anyway…

Especially after 15 minutes.

And I once watched a Qi master attempt to bust a brick using her Qi.

She was held in very high regard by everyone there.

Myself included.

We all watched as she walked up to the brick.

Expectations were high.

We all felt we were going to see something exceptional.

She took her stance.

Did her thing and slapped the brick.

The brick wasn’t impressed.

She slapped it again.

And again.


Yes, you guessed it she slapped it over and over.

Until we all slunk off to do other things, too embarrassed to stay.

I could go on…

But I think you get the idea.

So to get time-tested, evidenced based, repeatable ways to:

And live a happier and more independent life…

Go here next.
