Learning Any Martial Art
In today’s world and the demand for instant gratification, we have instant messaging, fast food, everything is wireless, and we have ‘mixed martial arts’ which is assumed to bestow martial arts skills of several styles in relatively short order. The mind of the uninitiated novice might jump to the incorrect conclusion that learning several styles is no problem at all; just join an ‘MMA’ gym.
Of course this is not the case at all. To learn a martial art one must also train in a martial art. Unlike the movie “The Matrix” we cannot download kung fu skills into our cerebellum from a computer! The body must be trained.
