Recurring fear

Hi Skilzat.

I have this problem of recurring fear. Even though I've landed many btwists, each time I try to do another one, it just sort of comes back and I'm left standing around waiting for my mind to clear or to forget it. The technique is clear as day to me. And by the end of a session.. I've only done one or two btwists. Thanks to this, I can't tweak my btwists for progress' sake.

Your advice is much appreciated. Thanks.

Due to this being more of a general problem, I'll just upload a wushu btwist video, dunno cos I do wushu :p

Analysis and Suggestions

I wouldn't worry too much about forcing yourself to do B-Twists more than a few times each session. You may have to gradually overcome your fear of them by just doing a couple each session. Just do your couple, and move on. Don't think too much about it. Just do a couple each session for a 5, 10, 20, or 100 sessions! Just do it until it naturally becomes a part of you.
Don't think about the technique, or about fret about doing it, and don't worry about tweaking yet. By doing just the couple that you can do each session, your body (and mind) will naturally get acclimated to doing the trick. And soon it'll be natural to you.
Cause let's face it, if you do 2 B-twists each session, and you have 50 sessions, it does seem like your body and muscle memory would have adapted by then, right? Not that it will take that long. But, we can expect that after that long, our minds will have now "accepted" the B-Twist, and the fear we have it will probably have been diminished. Time is a wonderful tool! :)

my friend told me that if i wanna go for a trick, go all out and don't hesitate at all. it may be easy saying it, but i think it's a matter of training the mind to go empty while nailing tricks. what do you think?
