This is a good article on the Gokui (secret principle) of Banpen Fugyoon. Think of how this relates to our training in the dojo and how to apply it yourself. http://bujinkansantamonica.blogspot.com/2011/08/banpen-fugyo-emptiness-in-midst-of.html
Banpen Fugyo is often translated as ten thousand changes, no surprises. This is similar in concpet to the Japanese mythological being Kannon. If she ever focuses on what one of her thousand hands is doing, in that instant the rest of the hands die off. So, she must allow the hands to do as they will in a natural flow. In the Bujinkan, we train so that the ten thousand changes that can happen during a fight don't cause panic or even pause in our flow. Instead, we train to use those changes to our advantage and use them in the flow of our Taijutsu (body movement art).
