Re: Contact/Power - Examples

Quote:
So does anybody know any good exercises to develop contact/power?
the best advice you got is above - visualize. you got the comment on being in the moment and using your brain; also excellent advice.

use your heart: how do you feel? how does uke feel?

know yourself so well, that you become aware of uke as though you shared the same body.
i have heard others tell, and myself experienced 'losing' the knowledge of attack ending and
technique beginning. i really think this is the goal, and what the masters mean by 'connection'.

i don't think it's esoteric. i think it's life uncloaked.
