View the following video:
Observe the incredible awareness of Soke Hatsumi as he manipulates his opponent with such ease by simply stepping “here” and pressing “there”. Practicing with a partner is essential in increasing your shirabe and other skills that help contribute in obtaining a heightened level of awareness as displayed by Soke where looking directly at your opponent is not even required.
Punching and kicking will teach you some level of awareness but these exercises will not be enough to reach the level of awareness displayed by Soke in this video. Soke Hatsumi is truly inspiring.
