IMHO, Ma-ai (distance) and Musubi (connect).

In JKD, we would "bridge the distance" which translates to enter and close Ma-ai, to connect (Musubi and blend) with the opponent.

Usually metaphors have a practical application.

Now, get out of your head and back on the mat.

We do not rise to the level of our expectations, but fall to the level of our training. Train well. KWATZ!
