A problem ive found that people incurr in free fighting in karate is that they often fight in 'tram-lines' by this i mean that from practicing basics they become very used to moving forward and backward and pretty poor at sidestepping,id teach the concept of circular walking used in baguazhang to correct this problem.

Being able to fight at all ranges is of primary importance. Having a gap in your ranges will expose a great hole in both your offense and defense. Striking and grappling (and weapon) training are equally important to every martial artist.

This may appear off topic but it's important if you ever compete or practice with people from other arts.

Good Afternoon Sire:

Simple, the principle of being a grown-up, an adult... someone who AVOIDS the avoidable and lets others (less mature) be drawn into such vortexes <sp.?> of others problems, issues, nightmares.

Learn that skill, that core principle and the pysical technique is very less likely....

Great thread! Lots of excellent ideas on here already, can't really argue with any of them.

I vote for sensitivity - maintaining contact with the opponent makes it difficult for him to "surprise" you.

I cried when "old yeller" died, does that count? I actually agree completely but would add:

Mushin - having no preconceptions about what is going to happen and just going with what you know when you need it.

There are many principles and all of them good however, as always being one to think out of the box, I'd go with;

Realizing that understanding a principle isn't enough, you have to be able to apply it, and that understanding it doesn't mean that you can.
