While I agree about the "No Mind" during a fight, I often find that most apply the "No Thought" method prior to the engagement.
If you don't give it any thought in advance then how can you train for the specific???? Waiting for someone to teach you what they think you should know might not be a priority for the situations that could and often do arise and could get you hurt.....
The attack that proves the most deadly, is the one no one on the receiving end thought of....I offer 9/11 as an example.
I would also offer that most are waiting to be attacked before responding!!!!
You have a game plan in football as well as most sports or games of strategy,you study game films in advance, have predetermined plays and audibles when the situation changes.....why would you not consider something similar for self defense?
I know I have strategies in place, methods of defense, methods of attack, not to mention methods of escape already in play, but hey, that's just me.
You can practice 5-Swords to perfection....but while you are waiting for the punch to come, so you can teach that punk a lesson, what happens when his Homie is over by your wife, child, or someone of importance to you? How does your methods work when the rules of the engagement changed?
And most important how do you know what your limitations are and what is absolutely necessary?????
Do you really have to ask someone besides yourself?
