Being Still and doing Nothing are two very different things
It looks simple but a very complex statement.Doing Nothing is being lazy or just turning on TV without sense & sensibility. While Being Still is focusing on our senses, noticing our breath in & out. It gives us peace, calm and eternal energy.
Anticipation is highly important. Dont see it, feel itDuring practice Dre didnt anticipate from where and how Jackies punches are rolling. He didnt observe the movement speed of the opponent.It is always important to anticipation others movements, actions and even the situation and contingencies because What does not make sense today will make sense in the future
