#134698 - 03/20/05 06:47 AM I Can't.....?

When I'm going into a fight, intentional or not, When the person throws the first blow and I try to counter, I just cant. I have more than enough skill to do it, but its like .... A mental block i think. Its holding me back.... Its like I dont want to hurt the person but know I can.....and it has almost gotten me flattened by a mound of muscle. But anyway, I need to get rid of it so I can actually defend myself. And Idias? Thanks!

Try thinking of the confrontation as a game or a sparring match in the dojo, except for the penetration on your counter attack. Sounds like it's an aversion to getting in a real fight, so just "play" hard.
