Here we go:
What has always intrigued me is the lack of reality based thinking some practitioners and instructors of our art present. The odd part is the fact that our system was created to be a reality based system, and not a traditional style.
With that being said, I am mostly talking about those who think the Ideal phase techniques are gospel and will always work in a real situation. I really hope you don't think that way.
The ideal phase, in my view, is extremely important; however, if you think you can pull off all of them as written in a real situation you have been falsely led. Take the knife techniques for instance. Do you really think you are going to pull any of those off?
Of all the situations I have been in (several) where I had to protect myself, not once have I used an Ideal phase technique. I will say, however, the ideal phase techniques prepared me for the situations I was in.
What are your thoughts? Anybody! Please explain why you have the thoughts you have.
Let the discussion begin.
