whats the most important thing in martial arts?
probably sound like a noob but I've always asked my self this.
doesnt matter if its boxing, kung fu, mauy thai or any other fighting style, i wanna know whats the most important aspect of a fighter that applies to every martial art.
someone said to me its stamina and endurance, saying doesn't matter how strong ur opponent is, if u can out last him and endure his attack eventually u will win.
some say its technique and speed, e.g. a person fighting a guy twice his strength and size would need technique and speed to win.
then you have some saying its all heart or strength and what not.
what do you guys consider to be the most important trait a fighter should have regardless of what style of fighting?
that doesn't really help and its not a attribute lol

Well before the sharks start scenting the blood in the water I'll tke the question seriously man but its really hard to define just the one attribute.But I'll weigh in...
Tho 'staying alive' is also good.

What is most important in martial arts? Why, it's crushing your enemies, seeing them driven before you, and hearing the lamentation of their women!
Seriously though, there is no single attribute that outclasses all others. If you train one strength to the exclusion of all others what you are really doing is establishing multiple weaknesses that can be exploited by a more physically well-rounded and/or smarter fighter. Fighters who try to get by on one attribute are actually getting by on that attribute plus luck. How much faith are you willing to put in your own luck versus the guy(s) in front of you? You may not excel in every area but you should strive to be as versatile as possible.
