    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.
    i try man but at times i feel like giving up after gettin my ass kicked by a better fighter, i kno theres no magical potion or secret to success in martial arts, takes hard work and determination but theres gotta be something, something that can improve a fighter drastically.

    Conan the Barbarian. Watch it immediately. Arnie at his finest.

    Um Yeah, Positioning.

    A fundamental tactical awareness of your own position, your opponents, and the ability to adapt to, change or capitalise on same.

    IMO

    What's most important to me is remaining sane this summer break while teenagers with usernames like chaosdarksoulz befoul my beloved forum with their inane threads.

    There are two things, actually. The first is train harder. The second is train better.By that I mean visit other schools. Let other sensei/coaches, even other students point out what they see as shortcomings in your abilities. Maybe you just need a different perspective on training or a different methodology with which to pursue your training.

    oh sorry im not familiar with martial arts phrases but thats what i was thinking too.
    like keeping the right distance, not putting ur self up for an attack and looking for openings and taking advantage of it, not making unnecessary movements and so on.
    thanks man

    asking the how on methods of staying alive in this age and time of information and technology says that you must rank very low on the food chain, ie you do not think.

    Yeah, I'm more than a little surprised that someone who would choose a name like chaosdarksoulz not only hasn't seen every Conan film and read every Conan novel and comic,but hasn't written his own awful Conan fan-fiction as well. Something with a title like... "Demon Lord".
