Re: Getting Your Mind Ready. Fast.
Meditation, learn how to empty your mind. The the tricky part... learn to do it in motion and do so during your warm up.
For me the drive to the dojo is when I start preparing my mind. When I enter the building ,I leave the world at the door. As soon as I enter the dojo there is nothing but aikido. At least that is what I aim for. It does not always work.
