    Hell yeah! Hell no!
    Mine always says "Don't get greedy." I had a tendency to go headhunting and striking for the head or going for a knockout without disabling a limb or checking a shoulder. In Kuntao it's apparently a no-no.

    Hmmmwell, you might want to let a few of them live.

    Others need sparring partners too, y'know.

    One I'll always remember was when I was doing pad work with someone, and I held the pads a bit too wide. The coach came over and said: "If you ever get in to a fight with a guy who's head is THAT big, just run away."

    Don't worry Pat, you never die from working out hard. - Soke Kiyohisa Hirano

    This was after a three hour instructor's class, 6AM to 9, that I'd talked my way into. We'd do 1/2 hour kata, 2 1/2 hours sparring drills and sparring one week and reverse the next week - that particular morning we'd done a new kata 18 times without a break and my legs had been shaking and I'd thought to myself, ****, I'm going to die.

    A TKD instructor had been guesting in Kyokuhshin and one day he said, "Thank you for what you told me about fighting spirit," to Sensei Del Griffiths. Later Del told me that the week before he'd talked to the TKD guy and got no response and he figured it took a week to sink in.

    For the Japanese, fighting spirit is very important. - Del Griffiths (two time Hawaiian Open Champ).

    Your days of speed and power are behind you. - Shihan Fred Perales

    You've got to show them what it's like on the higher levels. - Patrick Smith (belted in Karate, TKD, and Judo), after beating up and repeatedly throwing down on hard wood floor a brown who was getting ready to test for black.

    "If I see any of you leaning against a wall I will break your legs."

    I haven't trained for years now but I love what he meant and it's application in everyday life. Even now if I'm exhausted, frustrated or hurt, I'll never show it in my body language. No leaning, no slumped shoulders, no wincing; just focused, alert and game face on.

    "You need to work on your technique...you've got fighting spirit, but so do a lot of other guys. And if you get into the ring with a guy who has fighting spirit that equals your own and has superior technique - you are going to get owned."
