Fully agree. This took me back to nights of frog hunting and creek fishing with no light. You learn very quickly to react to what is around you. You can literally 'feel' your environment.Watching them blindfold you and spin you around before starting reminded me of similar drills that I trained as a child. But they involved donkey tails and piñatas and always ended with candy.
IMO blindfolded training involving various forms of contact training such as clinch-work, grappling, and blindfolded chi-sau are very useful.
I'm not so sure about stalking opponents in a darkened room, but then I've developed a hearing loss over the years and since having COVID, I don't smell my training partners as strongly as I used too ...and frankly, that's a blessing!
