The original Shinkyokushinkai techniques were designed for the critical situation where one may or may not survive. Under such conditions, it is difficult for anybody to keep a calm mind; the ability of clear judgement or physical reflex slows down, and often one may find himself immobilised due to nervousness. Therefore keeping a calm mind is a crucial concern in Shinkyokushinkai practice, and this is why a training session begins and ends with a period of meditation. In addition, Shinkyokushinkai’s rigorous and disciplined training makes a practitioner confident about his techniques and gain mental stability. According to the ancestral guiding, this method is recognised as most effective in avoiding mental fluctuation.
