As student of martial art I would like to ask you if zazen can be useful to develop any kind of skills in my practice .
April 24, 2015, 11:18 pmIt is said that Zen is the source of martial arts. Because even when you practice kata and martial art exercises, it is your mind that you use. If your mind is being moved around by the opponent, you cannot practice the form correctly. Throwing away all attachment to yourself, developing a huge open mind, that is the purpose of zazen - throwing the self away is of utmost importance.
