About a year ago, after suffering a fairly humiliating beating at the hands of my sifu, I became convinced that there was something fundamentally lacking in the way I was training. Since then, I've narrowed it down to a question of mindset...I didn't have the ability to deal with situation mentally, and the years I'd spent training in Aikido, Kung Fu, and Uechi seemed something of a waste. Lord knows what would have happened to me if that had a been a real world fight.
Unfortunately, while I've managed to locate a couple of people and places that discuss mindset, I'm at something at loss to find good materials on the subject. I'm looking into Tony Blauer's stuff, but I was wondering if anyone here could suggest to me some good books/videos/drills/whatever to help me out. There's a startling amount of bad martial arts material out there, and I'm a little leary of just wandering through it randomly.
Any suggestions, please post here, or email them to me at BLACKSTEEL@AOL.COM
