Log in to Reply You guys are missing what no mind actually means. its a state a warrior enters where they stop thinking. They simply act. Its primal and fearsome, and required. Its not a Buddhist ideal, its just something all warriors, regardless of nationality, must do. A battle trance if you will.

Critique and learning what people think and learning from it is important. Letting it imprison you is toxic. The american culture loves to imprison. I’ve had people tell me “don’t challenge a black belt… don’t do this don’t do that…” basically, “don’t learn, think, improve because failing will cause us to think badly of you.” Well I say “too much mind.” Log in to Reply 00:42 jujutsu Log in to Reply “The mind is like a phantom that lives only in the past or future,its only power over you is to draw your attention out of the present……the time always was,is,and always will be now!”..Way of the peaceful warrior….
