Karate makes power. Karate is power.
You do those forms and you feel the power start to take hold, you feel your body energize and get stronger and stronger. Finally, you have the power! You can explode with instant energy that is unstoppable. What now?
Well, what now is that you need to take a second step. The second step is not more power.
What? You don’t like that answer? But you’ve already got enough power…what do you need more for?
Let me ask you a question, if you had to fight ten guys, would you fight ten times as hard?
You’d fight one tenth as hard for each guy.
So you don’t get more energy and violence and move faster and faster…that just wastes you. What you do do is learn to be efficient, to create the effct of more energy with less effort and less motion.
So when you get your black belt, start to look around. See if other arts will compliment this concept. Look at yourself, see if you can hit softer…and yet create greater effect. There are methods, you know. It is possible…you just have to break out of the method you’ve been trained in and…reverse your path.
you read that right.
Once you hit black belt…you have to train in the opposite direction, get softer and softer, until people can hardly even see you.
I used to train with some of the toughest guys in the world, outlaw bikers. But they all bowed quickly and stood silent in the presence of the most polite man in the world. What he knew in gentleness was far greater than all their massive muscle.
