 Form Challenge #18 - Sijo
Unlike the Haiku the Sijo can have any number of stanzas to make it a ballad or a lyric and it can contain metaphor and other similar ideas.
The traditional Sijo is of about 44 syllables consisting of four phrase groups per line.
In "Modern Sijo", there has been an easing of the syllable count of the phrase groups and more modern poets have broken up the phrase groups into two per line and from this we have a six line sijo as an alternative poetry form.

Sijo Bruce analyzed various martial arts to understand their essence and their principal virtues with the goal of creating a complete and effective system, which twisted the traditional martial arts rules.
It's very important to understand that there is not a superior art in every circumstance; each fighting method has strong and weak points: who usually train to fight standing will have big problems in groundfighting, for a grappler will be difficult to defend himself against punches or kicks or against multiple attackers.
Sijo Lee remarked that for each range or situation there is a martial art more effective than others, so it is important to be able to flow from one art to another considering the situation or the range of combat.
