Re: "IP/IT/IS" vs technique?
My post was mostly on the topic of freeflowing technique. I don't think you got that.
My personal belief is that imagery and intent training works against the goal of developing the ability to react spontaneously and appropriately to the movement of the universe. I have always thought the traditional Japanese training model was designed to take the mind out of the equation and I keep thinking that is a better and better idea the longer i do it.
