    sparring with my friends young son yesterday. he says 'you're too fast i cant hit you' i told him the secret. that from this point he only gets faster and i only get slower. at one point we will cross and be at the same speed and then he will pass me. then i have to rely on my skill more much more. at this point i can beat u with just speed and basics...but only for so long.'

    For whoso comes amongst many shall one day find that no one man is by so far the mightiest of all.

    (I'm picking on Tai Chi as an example - you can replace TC with whatever name you wish)

    I'm beginning to wonder if Tai Chi knows what it's supposed to be, or what it's supposed to look like - is it uprooting, throwing with strikes - like combat SC? and if so, combat SC does a better job at being combat SC...

    Same thing can be said for a lot of martial arts. Maybe we should define, at least for ourselves, what the martial art we're practicing is supposed to look like and accomplish.
