Whenever I talk about Budo's main purpose is to overcome fear (a recurring theme in my posts) I essentially mean intimidation. There are training partners and others that intimidate me. In the former case this is something I can work on, hopefully it will spill over into the latter. That said it takes a lot more to intimidate me now than when I was 15. Is that the Budo or maturity - who knows? Of course I like to think the Budo has had some positive effect.
