Maybe I would say
"If you lean more towards- learning some applications in-Chinese Martial Arts, go with Mike."
"If you lean more towards- learning some applications in-Japanese Martial Arts, go with Dan. "
But training does not need to incorporate fighting if that is not your interest.
I know Chinese artists who see the things I do directly relating to what they do. I would say there are more things in common in body skills, just not in waza and approach to fighting with them.
How would intent and breath-power simply HAVE to relate to fighting?
It doesn't. It just happens to relate to everything Including shoveling, lifting, working and...fighting.
