we train on controlled environment for safety and to gain self control. Achieving higher levels of self control comes from destabilizing from inside so we unravel the ability to ride the wave of rage both up and DOWN.
We all have things that bug us, that annoy us, that bring the rage in us.
Have a partner slap the back of your head while you contend with the rising emotion and perform your chosen task from getting up and sitting down to avoiding getting struck by a third party.
Think of a bad memory, from getting run over by a tank (long story) to a crying baby at night and again, let the emotion run its course and use that energy to do what needs to be done instead of holding it bottled up and letting it surface in another manner.
Imagine a foe in front of you from a bad teacher in your past to Ra’s al Ghul. Let the emotion of hate, loathing and rage come up and use that energy to better move and navigate the thoughts inside.
Within all these drills, one thing remains.
Breathe with the emotion instead of trying to control it.
What we hold, holds us in its grip. Remember this.
