I am wondering if this question is on topic or not?

If so, would zazen questions be acceptable even if they have only a tenuous link to martial arts?

Where do we draw the line?

    I wonder if someone is discussing transfer of meditating state to martial art training would be of topic.

I am generally okay with that question on the site. It is somewhat tenuous to martial arts as you say, but I can see how meditation can be part of one's training.

From my (limited) perspective on martial arts, breathing is especially important in performing techniques. What you are describing I have also done in tai chi. I probably could answer it, but it's not easy. It took me a long time to even just get a basic grasp of what I was doing.


I agree; I don't think the question is better answered by an expert martial artist than by an expert in any other field. I believe the question is off-topic.

  • What do you agree with? Yes it is on topic, or no it isn't? :-)
