Martial Arts, Movement

Mind and Matter

Boards don’t hit back.. or do they?

It’s so interesting how much more difficult it suddenly seems to kick a board with relaxed attitude (and the required precision) once you anticipate it might possibly hurt when it doesn’t quite work out..

The mind is a powerful thing.

It needs the practise as much as the body does.

The same applies to un-training certain movement habits, and inhabiting new-to-you technique tweaks.

It takes a kind of letting go. Trust.

And you?

What aspects of practise do you consider to be at least as much mental (or even emotional!) as physical in terms of training?
