    Survey Time: Martial Arts Data Gathering



    You can't make progress in anything without objectively looking at the facts and numbers. If you're trying to improve your bench press, you've got to count pounds and reps. If you want to improve your striking, you pay attention to how many times you get hit, versus how many times you hit the other guy.

    And if you're trying to improve the Martial Arts, you pay attention to as much data as you can get your grubby hands on. That's because there really isn't any good information out there, because most of it is tainted by assholes trying to make a buck teaching you garbage, or just avoiding the "science" angle of things because it's an unnecessary headache out of the scope of teaching people how to hurt other people effectively.

    Anyway, that's a lot of words to tell you to take this damn survey for the good of this whole thing we do.

    That took a few minutes and was thought-provoking.
