"I just read your article in the NY Post [sic] and saw one of my Zen fighters – Lorenzo – on the front page (He’s the kid with all the blood – there are better pictures – like when he knocked out Doug in the third round). But the cover picture is good from one viewpoint – while Doug was trying to choke out Lorenzo, the kid moved into a deep meditative state – allowing him to slow time and see what is real without fear. He can then do what he needs to do to turn things around.
If you would like to take this week’s story to the next level we could talk about how classical Zen training is being used with underground MMA fighters to give them a competitive advantage. Jonathan Figueroa is another Zen fighter and you can see him drop into deep states of Zen awareness as he waits to go into the ring as well as at key points during the fight. Peter Storm is familiar with what we’re developing as is Bruce Kivo. And the technology works – Lorenzo avoided being choked out and did come back to win the fight by a knockout.
