Hoshin
what it shows, for us as martial artists is that what is traditionally called a "win" may not be the best outcome. it is one outcome of many.


True. It can be a matter of semantics but it generally there is a 'foundation of expectations' that insidiously insinuates in a martial artist's mind...that makes him huff and strut...even if only inside himself...and even if consciously unaware.

Look at how many people we may have known who almost daily would love the opportunity to take someone on, to prove to themselves they are the real thing.

We have seen this here on my forum as well...

And these same people always take the occasion of slamming fellow practitioners in the dojo so they can acquire 'bragging rights'...

But then when real violence 'comes acalling' they seem to easily melt into a casket.

In particular, watch how you can get 'knifed' moving in to close the distance so you can play the 'closet game'...

Rick Wilson, in his book:Watch out for the Pointy end covers the tactical distance in close quarters...

Buy the book and you will see why in so many cases, when you watch a typical class, it will dawn on you that we generally know nothing about facing a potential armed opponent.

“To become dangerous to a master of the art, a fighter's inexperience--and therefore, his unpredictability--would sometimes serve as well as an equal or superior level of skill.

That's why the fencing books and duelling tracts throughout the centuries tend to warn against the naturalists and the "unferme" fencers--amateurs whose unorthodox way of handling their weapons made them as dangerous as champions to the duellist.”

“Even the best fencer should never forget that in dangerous situation weaker characters can be driven into a condition of raging courage by the thought of impending annihilation. (...)

History has shown that even experienced tournament fencers, who even had passed several duels victoriously, succumbed to inferior opponents only because they felt secure and superior.”

'Cockiness. .. will get you killed'

"Everybody's scared," Mann says. "If you ain't scared, you're cocky, and that's the cockiness that will get you killed."
