Re: Eyes in the Martial Arts

Hi Niall,
Thanks for this column - a very good read, great photo!

I cannot recall hearing the saying "gazing like autumn leaves" before. Is it from a particular author or belongs the saying to a particular ryuha? How is it pronounced in Japanese?

And what does it mean? I like the image. But does it point to a man gazing upon autumn leaves - it is not the autumn leaves that are gazing?

Thanks again,
