Whats your opinion/ advice on this? I've mostly been told never to stare your opponent in the eyes.
You should look through your opponent right through the center(chin, chest..) but look through not at. Practice with a friend just stare through them and have him/her move their arm or legs. You should be able to see everything without staring at it directly. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Thousand-yard_stare
