Black Dot Focus
From Martial Arts Wiki
Black Dot Focus – The Seishindo Kenpo System employs the use of the Black Dot Focus. The student is taught to visualize a Black Dot on a White Background. The White Background represents total awareness, and the Black Dot, the Target. When executing Motion on an opponent, never Focus so hard on the Target that you miss the unexpected. The Concept of Black Dot Focus will enlighten the student to their surroundings as they strike their Target, never loosing sight of possible danger. Students should remember not to become so over-watchful of their surroundings (Environmental Awareness) in anticipation of an unexpected attack that they might loose opportunities or advantages for executing Motion.
The opposite of the Black Dot Focus is the White Dot Focus. This is the visualizing of a White Dot on a Black Background. The Black Background would have just the opposite effect of the White Background as it represents unawareness of our surroundings. The White Dot would become the Target, with great Focus being placed on this point. All too often we hear the echoes of instructors telling their students, “Focus harder on your Target! These martial artists are advocates of the White Dot Focus.
