Boken Attacks hurt

Yeah they HURT!

O-sensei one said whatever stance you are don't look at his eyes you will fall into them, don't look at his eyes etc etc

I am not sure of the quote could someone post it.

My question is where do u look when u r in stance? I mean i know we are suppose to focus our mind and ki on the attacker but where you look you tend to focus. Evenmore so when the attacker is holding the boken and your eyes stray to it. Its not a wise tactical move as i found out after getting hit by fists when i focus on the boken too much.

Advise anyone? Where do i look? Also how do i focus so i can sense the attack?
