In General A very good question Entry Tools Rate This Entry

I didn't train today, but I did go to the dojo to drop something off and decided to stay for a bit and watch the kids class. Sensei asked a very interesting question which I believe I've heard before but not sure if I ever heard the answer. The question he asked is when does a technique begin. There were various answers, one kid said it begins when you start defending your self. Another said something to the effect that it begins when you are attacked. Sensei's answer was that the technique never ends.

I have to agree with Jennifer here, there is no beginning there is no ending. Life moves and blends around in a circle! It's like breathing, the technique just "is". Or here is another thought, the technique begins when you don't realize that you have always performed it?

In that way it also has no beginning. The universe is an equal equation employer. Zanshin: eternal spirit/mind, ever present; always remaining.
