Another thread brought up a realisation and I just wanted to get an opinion. When in fights or serious sparring matches I will mentally disappear. I don't know how to describe it, it is literally like I go into automatic pilot. The people I train with notice it too and if we are sparring will try to snap me out because it is generally a bad thing. In a fight I will "come to" so to speak, if put in an uncomfortable position or need to think my way out.
Especially if I am on my feet, I can go a whole round and not even realize or remember it, maybe bits and peices. until I see it. But even on the ground some times especially in training.
I was wondering if anyone else had experience like this, and other peoples' opinions as to whether it is a good or bad thing during an actual fight?
