Interesting comments. Particularly about the development of ego. So in what way has your religion changed or enhanced your waza?
In which scenario was your waza better; working for your benefit or for the benefit of the kids?
Very interesting! My current understanding is that increasing and controlling the length/power of the exhale is one of the goals behind Chinkon Kishin. How exactly has your practice grown (in relation to waza) as a result of practicing Taisen Deshimaru Roshi's advice on breathing?
