The kendo instructor who also does kyudo basically explained it as this:
"It is basically like doing the tea ceremony only you are using a bow instead of a bowl."

Again, it's process based instead of results based. A good process will probably lead to good results, but what happens when someone discovers a better process? Do they miss the grade anyway?

If all that stuff ,feeling good about yourself and wellness, was meant to help in some way to improve precision in a shooting than I would then understand.

Meet Darrel Pace and Rick Mckinney.
What Pace and Mckinney were doing twenty-five years ago is more similar to what pros are doing today, both in terms of form and equipment, than what pros were doing back then. That's because most ideas about modern form and equipment came from them. What was highly unorthodox (In other words, incorrect) back then was so immensely successful that it became the standard.

I don't see how this doesn't apply to you, unless you're not white, douchebag.Tough is not how you act, tough is how you train.
