As I said in many articles before this one, the idea of contemporary perception about Martial Arts is totally different than the activity which involves combat techniques, simply because the last ones can be included in the first category, but not mandatory.
the essence of a true Martial Art it not lies just in a good physical condition, or just in philosophy, or just in etiquette, but rather in a blend of this ideas in different proportions which varies from person to person or from Dojo to Dojo.
on this perception, there is not just only one possible method or one single and exclusively approach through which you can achieve the outcome you seek, if you are not able to understand and to externalize your true self, and if you do not follow your own true path, you will always lose whatever your opponent will be.
the Martial Art should not be a goal in itself, because then it transforms and becomes characterized only by the technical aspects like as positions, angles or strengths ratio balance.
in my opinion, first and foremost, the Martial Art is a method whereby the practitioner can develop the true self, can express his will and his identity.
even if technically a move you perform is not even that good, as long as it makes you happy and helps you eager to get beyond yourself, is more than enough for the most part.
I am sure that, beyond this aspects, there are no true shapes, patterns or directions.
the readers of this martial art blog should understand that all the technical advices that I have wrote here do not replace the dojo training.
their purpose is meant to highlights the substance of each technique like something that should be considered as a summary.
