How would one go about doing such a thing? How does one actually stop thinking?
Hmm...interesting point.

I suggest that you don't stop thinking, but instead think of your first movement in each technique as an attack (see my previous post about pivots, etc). I mean actually think to yourself "I am attacking like this" while you are moving to the attack. If you do this you won't be waiting for uke to come to you and therefore you won't have time to be thinking about what technique to do because you'll already be doing it.

It works for me, anyway.

Bronson...thanks for the kind words but if you talk to people who know me you'll hear that I'm not really brutish...that is, that's what you'll hear if they know what's good for them
