Athos explains what Eagle Vision is and why it is important in fighting
Eagle Vision is the term used in martial arts to describe the way in which eagles, other birds and reptiles see their prey. In the Reptilian State of Mind, we do not use focus vision, whereby we would be focusing on our attackers individual weapons, making us oblivious to what the other parts of his body are doing. When in Reptile Mode, we instinctively go into Eagle Vision whereby our mind and vision are literally locked on the space which is occupied by our attacker, as if our energies become linked. As he moves his space moves causing us to move accordingly. An eagle can zoom down from a great height and grab a small mouse which is constantly moving. This is a perfect example of Eagle Vision.
