“Physical 2 Mental” Video clip:
The below table demonstrates some of the “Physical Tools” provided during the BuDo-Way sessions and the corresponding mental affect these have. As you acquire those practical tools you should be able to apply those any time as needed within actual life situations modifying your mental state at will and thus taking control over your performance, success and ultimately your life.
Buddhist Sunyata (emptiness), KaraTe and KumiTe
Buddhist Sunyata can be understood as the realization that no entity or being has its own separate, independent or permanent nature. Rather all beings are inter-related through mutual influence and in an on-going flux of constant change.
BuDo concept of KumiTe can serve as an example or analogy. When two martial artists face each other in KumiTe they become one. There is no separate independent existence of each, rather the flux of mutual influence where each is aware, responsive and constantly adjusting to the other.
This is the deep meaning of the Japanese word Kara (empty) of KaraTe-Do where each practitioner becomes empty of separate independent existence symbolically represented by the term KumiTe (integrated hands).
