Past Play I: In the past I have trained very hard. I wanted to be a fighter. I trained in a a full contact karate style known as KYUKUSHIN karate for many years. In karate you are a kinesthete primarily. You learn how to condition your mind and body to move in a disciplined fashion through bodily repetition. When sparring I often get lost in the act. I personally experience diminished consciousness of self and enter a zen like state. When Im losing its a bit of a different story.
