it's strange ( or perhaps this the usual prominent human reaction which isn't easy to overcome).

I've felt several people ( "hybrids" ), amongst them at least two well known high-ranking Japanese, who all had a lot of internals to offer, but each and every time when challenged, their fighting spirit taking over and all internals forgotten, sheer muscling through was what was left and they were good at it.


Which basically illustrates a gap and why changing over how your body fundamentally moves is both critical - there's ki tricks against compliant partners, having some hybrid skills that work against resistance and then fundamentally changing how your body moves, manages force loads and generates power.
