I think that to fully teach and learn ma u need to make it ur lifestyle!u need to have more than just a good health and ability to defend ur self it has to improve and help u in ur everyday surroundings!Im trying to find how ma improves my knowledge as a human being!i think that mas should know a lot medicine and kinesiology to better understand its art!anyway it is stupid to risk ur own life in a real combat every day but if u dont then it is not ur lifestyle!i think that there is more to ma than just a combat!ask ur self what will be lef of ur training when old ages come;and train only things that will last ur whole life!sorry for my english it sucks i know! best regards to u all!
