Response to Good point
Yes Gary, I believe this with all my heart. When I introduced Kenpo in Kenya, it built up on the beautiful moves and techniques. However over the years as I have gotten older, I see the limits of teaching in the self defense way. The vast majority of the public show little interest in being physical, and the intelligent people dismiss Martial Arts (as it is presented to them) as a game for the lower class of society. We have lost the connection between the REAL search for perfection, and the Martial Arts. We all strive to be like God. Someone in the past had a way to connect that need to Martial Arts. Gary the TV series "Kung Fu" really touched on this. Did you know 90% of that show was about life, and only 10% was about fighting. Reading these posts of everyone talking about Basics on the physical level, shows me we are behind in our understanding. What do you think?
