A martial “thought for the day”:
No martial art has ever worked in self-defence or in combat. There has been zero cases of any individual ever being knocked out / incapacitated by a martial art. What does work are the actions of martial artISTS. Pick any martial art you like and it is ultimately an ethereal concept. It can only be brought into being by the actions of the martial artist. Our martial art can’t fight for us and it can never protect us. Only we can do those things. We therefore need to focus on the making ourselves work, because the martial art is nothing but an intangible idea without us.
