    Do YOU think it should take ten years in order to learn how to fight with your system?

    "Three years small achievement, five years medium achievement, ten years through the door" is how I've heard it, but "through the door" doesn't mean "Now we can teach you some fighting."

    Interesting video.

    From one that's never practiced CMA (a little TaiChi), but spent a lot of time in China, Japan and SE Asia in general.

    Taken from the video?

    Times are changing. Wushu = XMA = flashy looking forms. More old school needed.

    Per my priorities, I'll never be advanced enough to call anything "my system", but for those who're more focused, I suppose that's a value judgment based on bang-for-the-buck. Your reply leaves open the question "in order to learn to fight whom, and how well?" Someone looking to fend off the local drunkard has an entirely different value judgment to make than does a cop or soldier, and both of those're different than for the guy who wants to earn some money/fame in the ring.

    If what you originally meant was that there's some flaw in traditional CMAs' pedagogies, then I'd be all ears as to any specifics I might benefit from.

    By "your system" I mean whatever it is that you train and fight using... as it's yours if you can use it. That's how I see it.


    Cop, Soldier or pro fighter... which is training for ten years to "get it?" Any way we go about this, I can't figure out which dangling carrot takes ten years to "get." I don't know.
