In Instinctive Response Training we have a lot of techniques for learning how to utilize your breathe properly not only during meditation but also in relation to being a moment of physical violence. One of key components to learning meditational breathing is learning to breath in through your nose, down into the lower abdomen and then exhaling out through your mouth. Now that are several ways to do this and I will not be going into detail regarding them as they need to be learned from an instructor but instead I will focus on the following exercise. This exercise is crucial to learning the Martial Science as I teach them. Foundation meditational exercise one: First step breath in with the inward breath lasting for five seconds, accumulate it in your lower abdomen and hold it there for five seconds, then exhale for five seconds then repeat. The idea is to eventually lose yourself or “let go” during your meditation so that the body/mind/spirit takes over and continues this without your conscious thought. Take a little bit of practice but truly not much. This is a foundational exercise in IRT that is a core trigger down the road for future training.
