Josh Waitzkin on chess and taichi

Wow, this is a fascinating interview with the guy who was the factual basis for the movie, Searching for Bobby Fischer. Josh Waitzkin fell somewhat out of love with chess and got into taichi. Eventually reconciling his problems with chess, he came to equate the two arts as the same thing. In the end of this interview he talks about a fascinating perceptual thing that goes on in the martial arts - time dilation. I'm ordering the book he's hyping in this video because it sounds super interesting and right up my alley.
