I was working on kenjutsu last week and was moving with my training partner changing kamae (position based on what my spirit is sensing in relation to a changing environment). This requires the mind and body to stay sharp, because if your mind floats for one moment you could be in over your head. A good starting place on how not to get in over your head is “Stay in the moment, not before or after.”
When studying martial arts, it is very important to study distance. When we are doing are drills and randori (free movement), focus on how distance can change based on intent and whether the fight is armed or unarmed. Also know how this judgment works in life
One of the great things about martial arts training is how we can explore who we are as people on the inside. When training, the ability to make a decision under pressure requires strong focus in the moment. Live in the moment. Plan for the future. Learn from the past.
One of the great things about Ninpo Taijutsu (Body skill training for Self Defense) is the freedom of movement and natural energy flow that are with in basics of training. Using the skills from breathing and natural expansion of the body found Ninpo Taijutsu, this will direct the body’s natural energy flow into an extraordinarily strong health promotion and self-defense method.
Self defense is the process by which we avoid danger. This is done by
using a combination of our intellect and our physical bodies.
