OK, had posted similar question on the general martial arts area. Does any one of you have experiences going "no mind" while performing a kata, or, more specifically during sparring? I have not been getting the kind of feedback I had hoped for in the former area. Posters seem to think I'm in need of mental help or am trying to "show off" I guess. Books seem to only reference the state, but ones given to me seemed to confirm what was going on. I have been going in and out of the state while fighting for about a year now. Didn't know what was going on, except that I thought it was really strange. Looking for stuff I can read, how can I cultivate it,etc. Sensei says he does not do this so he cannot guide me in this. Said it's not a common occurance, I guess. Figured this forum may be more receptive/have had experiences with this thing. Anybody?
