Naturally, I do not always have an opportunity to 'set up' before an attack / technique, and other times whatever relexation I have goes away mid-way through whatever I am doing. Do you have any suggestions for how to re-capture relaxation in the moment?
I personally find that training slowly at first helps me maintain kamae and breathing, relaxation. Only when I find the flow, I pick up the pace.
To "re-capture", I tend to slow myself down again and focus back on kamae and breathing, relaxation.
I like to train on find the groove, so once I find the flow I tend to bow out rather than just train in it. As you imply, "re-capturing" is far more difficult than maintaining.
