    Relative complexity

    What, in your opinion, is he maximum degree of complexity that you think can exist in a martial system before it becomes too difficult for the average person to utilize? This question applies to concepts and principles as much as it does the number and variety of techniques.

    To add to what ronin said, it can be an inability on a teacher's part to teach well. When a teacher can't explain a technique's mechanics to a five year old, the explanation is too complex. You don't have too much time to think in a fight, so you need to understand basic principles well. A teacher needs to be able to explain everything in terms of basic principles. Needing to say "chi" to explain how a technique works is one example of too much complexity.

    Oh . . . I see.

    Is this a metaphoric, or a literal thing.

    When you lose focus on what the Martial Art was originally created for: TO FIGHT.

    Too much "philosophy", too much "theory", too much "ego", too much "mystism", and too little fighting. Just STFU, FIGHT and someday you'll get somewhere.

    A system can have a billion techniques in it and still produce effective fighters. Of course, the fighter will be specialized and proficient in only a handful of those moves. A teacher, however, should know many techniques because what works for the teacher may not work for his students.

    Zing and samadhi make some good points, but they seem to be more related to pedagogy than the nuts and bolts of the system itself.

    First, we must decide what average is.
