She describes this as the “rushing syndrome” or sickness. She adds, “When you’re stuck in traffic, look up and watch the sky while the sun is setting and take that moment in. There are beautiful moments everywhere you look.”
Besides breathing, mastering the artwork of the samurai sword is part of a healing process. She was trained by one of the masters who trained Lucy Liu for Kill Bill: Volume 1. Jojo finds that the samurai sword entices a lot of culture with people bowing to the point that the samurai sword is regarded as a code of honor.
