comment Should I avoid open-handed blocks in sparring?
Perhaps injury come from holding the open hand rigidly. Or sparring fast with lots of tension.

comment “Rules” for weight distribution per FOOT (not leg, foot) for any given stance/intent?
@Campbeln cool, glad it helped. Let me know if you find anything interesting. I don't think my answer is complete.

comment “Rules” for weight distribution per FOOT (not leg, foot) for any given stance/intent?
@stslavik Sure, I've seen toddlers fail. They are usually learning with a child's mind though, unlike many adults. And bad habit does matter (falling too much on the inside of my foot over a number of years predisposed me to bad knees). However, I think the original poster is coming from the wrong frame, and this answer was intended to answer from a better frame.

Weren't we playing with this the other day? Addiction to self is hard to break.

comment When should I run away?
There are some arts that train avoidance instincts. I think you mean, "don't run away blindly." That's as exploitable as "charge in blindly."

comment What exactly is Kalaripayattu?
Do you know anyone that practices this? Or better yet, crossed hands with a practitioner? If you have, I'm interested in hearing more about it in your answer.

comment Why doesn't aikido have kicking techniques?
Sweeps (which are kicks) above the knee, but I don't think that's part of conventional Aikido.

While this is a good topic/question, the original poster is asking for a much narrower question. That narrower question has already been asked here: martialarts.stackexchange.com/questions/482/… @DavidH.Clements what do you think?

@Aristos You making the same mistake every newbie makes. Meditation happens continuously. It's not something you turn on for a few minutes and then "go back to normal".

@Aristos Ok, I see where you're coming from. You're assuming there's some trick, some button you can press on your controller to activate your Super Samurai Ninja Jedi Relaxation Technique. There isn't one. There is a secret here, but it is hidden in plain sight. It's the kind of secret that people tell you exactly what it is, try very hard to make as plainly as they can, but you still would not get because it is not something you are looking for and not something you want to accept.

comment Harnessing emotion during sparring
@Rophuine "ego" is very tricky. If you feel the need to justify yourself, as you did here, that's ego. But I get what you mean though: you don't necessarily want to prove your self worth by beating down someone; the thrill of a challenging opponent is enough.
