Re: why focus on internal power

I think the most interesting aspect of "internal" martial training is the denial of initial reflexive conditioning on the premise that conscious thought should remain embodied within our actions.

In this way our techniques are dictated by a more complete and (hopefully) more "correct" response, even as they approach what appears to be reflexive action.
