Dynamic Combative Movement Of Infinite Possibilities
Apr 23, 2020
“Once you have sharpened your intellect to the point where you can see whatever in the world is true or not, where you can tell whatever is good or bad, and when you are experienced in various fields and are incapable of being fooled at all by people of the world, then your mind will become imbued with the knowledge and wisdom of the art of war.”
- Miyamoto Musashi, The Book of Five Rings
So I return to the beginning…
To the most fundamental thing, the thing that we all want and that is the ability to control our body in such a way where all that we do falls to our will. The ability to crush the enemy brutally and decisively but in order to get to that place we have to be able to develop our minds as well as our bodies to get to that place.
We have to remember that all men are basically the same and that the qualitative difference between one man or another is training. But also training in the right things and not training for the sake of just moving but actually training to win the battle. It makes a difference.
In this blog post, I’m going to get into what we in Warrior Flow refer to as Dynamic Coordination in a later part of this series I’ll get into how to bring this together to strike as we like to refer to it with supernatural speed and power. But before that I have to return to the beginning and to another place first, the thing that is the linchpin of our ability to control our bodies on a fundamental level.
Dynamic Coordination – in Warrior Flow is a culmination of all “Combative Movement Concepts” working together that allows you to get ahead of an antagonist’s movement throwing off their timing (Quantum Sphere Concept) to crush them and prevail. It is an ability you develop as a result of and in combination of equilibrium control, subtle muscle control, and perceptual awareness. However, what makes it work is understanding how to move in with your body in the "context" of what you are experiencing. This allows you to access and increase your "Creativity". Understand you cannot do this unless you are able to control your body.
“The path that leads to truth is littered with the bodies of the ignorant.”
- Miyamoto Musashi, The Book of Five Rings
Equilibrium Control – in Warrior Flow is the ability to control your equilibrium while striking or evading from any position or while moving at all times. In other words, this is not a fixed thing we do because combat is dynamic so your ability to move from one place (spatial reality) to the next needs to be equally dynamic. At its foundation is Human Balance which is the ability to maintain the body's center of mass over its base of support.
The reason we call it Equilibrium Control is because technically our sense balance is at times referred to as equilibrioception, (yeah say that three times fast), which is the perception of balance and spatial orientation and keeps us from falling over when standing or moving.
Interoception and Down the Rabbit Hole
“Without any confusion in mind, without slacking off at any time, polishing the mind and attention, sharpening the eye that observes and the eye that sees, one should know real emptiness as the state where is no obscurity and the clouds of confusion have cleared away.”
- Miyamoto Musashi
Interoception is an internal sense that provides information about the internal condition of our body—how our body is feeling on the inside. Interoception allows us to experience our body’s internal sensations such as the tension of our muscles, the movement of our joints, the weight of our body, the shifting of our balance, and more. Once we understand it, we can develop a level of movement in the body that allows us to not only gain greater control over our bodies but reshape how we move on an almost Quantum Level of Movement (I’ll probably explain this in another post).
Now, by focusing on this you are able to develop your Interoceptive Awareness. This awareness which is a component of what we call in Warrior Flow “Perceptual Awareness” allows us to develop the ability to “move sooner” through Anticipatory Movement (i.e., the thing you do before you do the thing you’re going to do). This is what I mean when I discuss developing the ability to move with every fiber of your being.
Well, I’m going to cut it off here because I want to get into this a little more on how to practice this in my next post.
P.S. for those who want to learn more about how to develop this type of movement.
