    I meant to refer, dear Sir, that I do not measure my hate with that of others. Not that I had anything to be shy about, though. My hate, it burns bright.

    Because I didn't care if I hated you before others did.

    THE TWO FACES OF COMBATIVES,

    "affective aggression (in animals, predominantly displayed towards members of the same species) is typified by a high level of emotional display with comparatively little potential for lethal results. In contrast, predatory aggression, while often lacking overt display, frequently has a more lethal outcome."



    This is the big draw to Bullshido for me, the insane level of accountability, and confrontation allow for a discourse to develop.

    from the article
    "Affective combative-systems are predominantly those fighting systems aimed at civilian, single self-defense, and agonistic (sport and/or display related). However, the dominant impetus for the development of non-battlefield combative-systems would have been civilian self-defense, from which would emerge the duel, the agonistic, etc., as historico-cultural influences dictated."

    "With the development of more densely populated, agroindustrial societies, we would see more and more blurring of the distinctions leading to certain kinds and degrees of maladaptive application."

    "These distinctive affective/pseudo-predatory behaviors are retained within the structures and functions of the fighting arts within socio-cultural traditions world-wide. In the traditional fighting arts of older cultures, especially, we are provided a window into the combative behavior of our ancestors. By comparison with modern fighting systems, we gain a further insight into the differential evolution of our own combative behaviors, contextually determined, as affective combat, pseudo-predatory combat, or, more likely, a blending of both."

    I like the paradigm created in the article. I have read somewhere that Shotokan Karate is a dueling art, but always wondered what the circumstances leading to the development of a dueling art where, as compared to something like Wing Chun. Not necessarily discussing the effectiveness of an art, but examining it as a phenomenon within its cultural parameters.

    Their Spartan acadamy is just a 2 hour drive from me, I think I might take a road trip.
    What's UP! I am learning some real grass roots ****-maybe I really don't know what I'm doing on this site.I suppose I better admit to being a newbie all around! Affective Aggressive Behavior? I must not actually understand that I am not aggresive but must learn aggressive acting?

    I've been a big fan of Burton for many years. I had heard before that his wife had burned all his notes after his death, thus eliminating vols. II and III of his Book of the Sword. Found out not that long ago that the notes survive - he'd just never bothered publishing them, because the response to Vol I was so poor. They're stored in, IIRC, the British Library.
