Good stuff, Bill,thanks. Miller wrote
One of the main problems with martial arts is the fact that, by itself, studying martial arts does not give you superior strength, speed, or make you invincible.

There is still the problem of dealing with an opponent who is bigger and stronger and faster than you.

I will not discount the fact of your own strength or power here, and I will definitely give credit to a well-placed punch or kick, but sometimes the opponent is just too big.


It is really all here in a nutshell. :mrgreen:
