I find that using "soft focus" is essential for sparring and especially for fencing, as the tip of the weapon is even faster than a punch. I also use it whilst riding my motorbike in China. Traffic and road conditions here can be such that one needs to be aware all the time and react in a split second.

I constantly tell myself when riding over here to "soften my eyes" in order to pick up all the incoming bogeys.
