Unfortunately when attacked we are rarely at our best
One of the local Uechi-ryu instructors says "you're only as good as your worst day".

Do you think you'll be attacked when you're walking upright with both hands free in the daylight on level ground? No way! You'll be attacked when you're carrying groceries in one hand and using a crutch with the other because your leg's in a cast, while walking the dog, trying to get your keys out and answering your cell phone, while on an icy hillside in the dark. So you better train for that day.


"A pacifist is not really a pacifist if he is unable to make a choice between violence and non-violence. A true pacifist is able to kill or maim in the blink of an eye, but at the moment of impending destruction of the enemy he chooses non-violence."
