I can't speak for others. I may play with such concepts and when I move just move, I really don't think then. Thinking is a distraction from center. This is where a lot of students can't get it because they have to think. At some point one can let go and trust.
I was watching Benson Henderson fight the other night...he wasn't thinking. He was fighting.
What we are letting go and trusting is a set of movement patterns we have installed through repetition, iteration, revision and thought.
