Lessons Learned from the Martial Arts

  • Safety is always one good step away – step wisely.
  • Holding on to anything too tightly, be it a weapon or a self-perception,  makes one’s feet sluggish and rooted.
  • There is no time for thought at the speed of instinct. Movement must be engrained in the body, and the mind must be unteathered.
  • Let targets come to one.
  • All else being equal, the subtler movement wins.
  • Almost all strikes should be done as coup de grace.
