Yes Lynn.......My Sensei and the others will be there in Atlanta. I haven't been yet due to work contraints, but if you see Sensei Dale Eisenberg from California, please tell him Michael back at the dojo says hi and hopes they're enjoying themselves. (That should freak them out).
I love the responses from everyone. Thanks for telling me that story Adam. I'm sure you know much better than I about having to deal with fear, but I hope to make some headway.
I came across this testing video from a dojo in Bosnia. Their evasion techniques are exactly what I meant regarding constant conditioning. I think it would be a great way to start. Ya think?
And Lynn.....Thank you...I am going to use your suggestion as well.
Keep the suggestions coming! I really want to explore this idea in detail.
