Do or do not...there is no try.

Becoming a Jedi is about being in control of yourself, emotionally, physically, and spiritually. Knowledge and Defense, never attack.

Yes, something to definitely look into...before someone gets hurt that is not supposed to.

In my humble opinion Martial arts needs to be taught by a properly qualified instructor. There is so much more that just technique just as becoming a Jedi needs proper training

I'm afraid I must disagree. You go back far enough, and there were no qualified instructors. They learned martial arts by themselves. Besides, it is like what Master Grayson said in another post, they need a belt system to show parents progress, and they charge a lot of money for these "extras". (Belts, Gi, Manuals, pads, ect.). Charging $45 for a long strip of dyed cloth is just insane.

I will find a sparring partner and work on holding back during such sessions, but I will never hold back when I am attacked or others are attacked.

That is what I said, but that's not the point. Yes, if you go centuries of time, there were no instructors, but there is no need to go it alone now. The system is also there so you know where you stand as well. With qualified instruction, that's not in it for the money or business, the belt system is in place (historically) to show progress for themselves. Martial arts schools need to stay in business, so for the sake of parents, need to give a 'timeline' for their benefit. This is why it is important to research the schools in your area properly. However, as the students delve into the arts more, they realize that they are progressing in both skill and spirit.

The ranking system, if you research, has been in place for centuries back before it was a steady business practice. What I said earlier is accurate, but from a business person's view.

Just like as we progress here as Jedi, starting at Initiate and working their way up. As Masters, we made the decision to put a minimum amount of months to Apprentice training under a Knight or Master to ensure that lessons were being taught. However, as I have told my Apprentices when they ask how long they have to go till Knighthood, I tell them that if you have to ask, you are not ready.

Hold back in practice, cause if we break our partners, we won't have them anymore. But one does not have to kill when injure will do.

I've never come even close to killing. I have broken bones, but these days I prefer to go for the major pressure points in the shoulders and arms. If you have no strength behind a punch, you are no longer a threat. I only break something now if they pull a weapon on me. So I guess I am holding back, just didn't really realize it till I analyze how my fighting has progressed over the years. Imagine that.

Funny what happens when you start thinking about it.

I am part of Amtgard. My group seems to prefer single short swords. I prefer to use longswords. I guess to be on parr I should use form ii/ form v.

Reminds me of the time in the seventies. Karate and Kung-Fu were big in the U.S. Downtown had a martial arts movie playing in every theatre. People were imitating what they saw on the screen.

I had a friend who was good at nunchucks. He was so good people who heard about him would come to challenge him in contests (not fighting each other but just doing the forms).

That said. People could get good on their own but not as good as having an experienced teacher.

I'd say 85% of the fights I have been in have been against pure brawlers. People who just punch or kick without any combat training. 10% was against marines, who are heavily trained in hand to hand combat (And drunk which makes them way harder to deal with), but more specialized types of moves (Fast take downs or lethal moves), and the last 5% being against real martial artists. Being self-trained, I have only lost twice, once to a martial artist and once to a group of drunk marines.

I don't take pride in my martial skills. It sickens me that even in this day and age such skills are even still needed. Sadly, that seems to be the "Human Condition". Killing each other over nothing at all. Hopefully, humanity will wake up one day and ask "What the hell are we doing?".
