Re: If I hear 'It's all the same' one more time...!

Certain universals seem to repeat through every art and every technique.
"Either he moves, you make him move or you move yourself."
"Unsettle your partner"
"Move from your center."
Taleb Sensei used to say that there is the "martial" and "the art." That first sword cut, first contact, is simple and similar across techniques. Once you have defused the attack (true victory) then the stylistic and largely meaningless differences can emerge.

Starting with intent then.

Btw, thank you all for such beautifully sincere responses.
It's interesting that everyone speaks from a slightly different angle; the same and different again.

The world changes when you do.
