I know this sounds crazy if you never have experienced that kind of stuff but it is really true. If you lead your physical actions with your breath it can drive you into a state where things happen automatically and you donīt have to think about. Itīs like a „Fighting Trance“
Personally I strive for this goal. I want always or as much as I can work in this state and being able to do things which I donīt even understand on an intellectual level but thatīs a personal decision I understand if someone likes a more scientific approach to Jiu Jitsu.
