Re: spiritual disciplines in relation to waza

Ted,

So how do those practices (in your personal experience) relate to your waza?

I think on a very physical level macrobiotics (from a dietary perspective) is very low in animal protein. This naturally has caused (me) to lose a certain amount of muscle mass. This in turn has made me physically a bit weaker and therefore forced me to find another way to do technique.

Necessity is the mother of invention!
