Re: Heart in martial art ?

Sounds like an interesting documentary.

Many people mention heart in training more metaphorical as intention, intensity, and commitment.

OYOH, our body is a neuro-network that beats, and breathes, and functions without conscious attention, thought, or direction.

We talk about muscle-memory and the heart is a muscle that can be developed.

I read an article the other day about the difference in brain activity between a powerful karate punch by a black belt versus brain activity from a beginner.

I often read about neuro-science studies in mental health.

I think we will find more as neuro-sciences studies move forward.

We do not rise to the level of our expectations, but fall to the level of our training. Train well. KWATZ!
