    Well reasoned and right on target. You have the right sight picture for how to train and why.

    I'm curious: what styles or systems have you trained in?

    Good Article.

    Have you read any of the classic taoist books?

    Even Bruce Lee had those who he learned from.

    An excellent piece of work, I liked how you explained the concept of Mind, Body, and Spirit in plain english at the end. I wish more schools agreed with you on the stick to your instincts thing. I know I do.

    Interesting and I agree on the theme of the article.

    I'd like to think that years of sparring in semi and full contact situationshas given me the mental edge and by that I mean I understand my body... The quick rush of of adrenaline how it makes me "lock up" and how I breath loosens me up to punch fast and stay quick. If I can get through the first 5 seconds I know I have the skills to either avoid or dominate the other guy. I get wicked rushes of adrenaline for about 1-2 seconds....

    It is so true about graceful fighters.. Another person at work takes a "gentler form of martial arts" and was taken back by my bruises on the arms and legs. "You must not be blocking right". No I'm helping a young man get ready for a brown belt test we get serious in our contact.

    Punches, knees and elbows maybe a nice boot to the outer or inner thigh if the dude doesn't clench and thinks he's tyson.
