Martial Arts, Judo, Karate, Jeet Kun Do, yadayadayada. All the martial arts. All designed to make you into the world’s untimate weapon. All designed to equalize the threat. And none of them permit you to do miracles. You cannot master a true martial art in a year, or even 2 or 3 years. Especially not if you only practice for 2-3 hours a week. No. To truly master a martial art you must practice thousands of hours over many years. Don’t forget: a professional fighter will work out and practice 4-6 hours a day 6 days a week. And s/he will do this for years and years. And even then a knife, a gun, an attack from the blind side, all can overcome your training.
So, what’s the point? Simple: The Martial Arts can improve your life, increase your chances of survival and make you healthier and better. But it’s not a movie and you have to practice. And Be Alert!
