Re: are you combat effective!
I am as effective as any martial artist is who has trained for 11 years, under the teachers I have had, with the intensity and focus I have exercised who meets someone he can defeat with the amount of training and talent they lack or possess.
Another way of putting this is. I can survive some combats and not others. It depends who is in front of me and what tools for fighting they possess. I cannot defeat a short man with a big bomb.That is the same for me, Mike Tyson, the Gracie's and the man walking down the street .
Deeper thought would have kept the question from ever being asked.
