This thread reminds me of a conversational hand grenade I threw in to a post-training-and-beer curry session. "what is it in us that makes us want to be martial artists, and what makes a martial artist"? That discussion is still going whenever "two or three are gathered together". I might even start it again as a thread, although my threads don't seem to last long!
PS. perhaps it's the post training curry and beer that makes me "circumferetially enhanced".
