Re: U.S.Marines studying IS?

Hey Ricky, nope, I am now in Germany for a few years and when in DC I have very little time to train it seems these days!

When they are addressing mindfulness, they are looking at the mental aspects and while they are trying to link it holistically they have a specific issue they are trying to address. While certainly IS training is applicable, there are only so many hours in the day in the end and thus, they will spend time on what typically falls within the buddhist practices of meditation and mindfulness and not so much on the "martial body" aspects of it.
