Re: Weapons training and developing perception of intent...
Want to develop perception from weapons? Training partners need to fully embrace teacher and student roles ... Until the teacher role can accept responsibility for pushing the student role to a greater understanding (a loving attack) there will be little gained. And until the student role can empty him/herself, embracing the moment whatever the teacher role brings, the time will be mostly wasted.
Doing and not doing and not choosing ... this is proper weapons practice.
