some sailint quotes
"You may train for a long, long time, but if you merely move your hands and feet and jump up and down like a puppet, learning karate is not very different from learning a dance."

The next time you're training in defensive tactics, envision being in a fight with a suspect. Don't hold back! Deliver each strike with the intent of stopping a suspect who is assaulting you. If you're training with this kind of intensity, it will be apparent to you and anyone else present. Even if you're in good shape, It won't take long to work up a good sweat and become short of breath.
