2 years ago during the CMD Trainers' Retreat in Singapore, Rodney King brought up a point that has stuck with me ever since. I think about it every now and then, and I find this has been one of those exercises in articulation which has really helped me to refocus myself when I need it.
If our actions are the outward manifestations of our internal mental and emotional states of being, how do we reconcile that with the fact that functional, honest training in the martial arts invariably involves the domination of other people?
For me, anyway, the answer is always the same, and it's pretty straightforward. I won't post it, though. Get your own.
