Regarding "thinking ahead":  check an article  called "The Expert Mind" by Philip Ross (Scientific American).  

That article has influenced my training far more than any other.  It's wonderful.

fantastic thread. love the concepts. completely agree that you can feel your parnters vibe, and the better you know the person the more likely you are to know if theyre having a bad day, good day, etc. i instruct classes, so the one argument i have is that when i get ahold of someone who vibes rough, i almost feel obligated to keep rolling with him until hes either exhausted or cools off. like i have to protect my students. ill even play defense and let the guy go nuts for awhile, if thats what i feel like he needs. anyway. love the chat, tho. do you guys who travel think the different schools all have different vibes? if you walked in and the instructor was... i dont know. putting gis away in the back room - like no one was out to greet you - that youd know much about the school from the ambiance?

What about Saulo mentioning no-mind like Rickson's neutral point? In other words, some say to think three moves ahead while others espouse not thinking at all and just reacting.

Imagine conditioning yourself so you are REACTING three moves ahead, that is some serious stuff right there. I'm going to try shrimping from the clinch and will report back.

But its not just about the mind. You need a neutral body and that has a lot to do with the right posture and mechanic.

You can´t react in a connected way if your body isn´t connected......

Really good thread! I just happened upon the rolled up episode with Erik Paulson and was completely intrigued with his explanation of this same topic.

I have had those feelings many times during training & competition but had never given it any thought until watching that episode. This thread has some REALLY great points to ponder.

Going to really try and get in touch with this sensation when training.
