Lee believed to some extent that "I'd rather be overtrained than undertrained". This was regarding to calisthenics, technique training.

I think that if one has the fitness to do it, techniques can be done even when fatiqued.

It should be known, that it is no use to train delicate motions when one is tired, only resistance. This way the coordination does not get off by repeating gross motions. This is commonly known principle of sport science.

I'm not about to read 3 pages but i did skim the surface paying special attention to posts from those i hold in regard.

Let's take a look at the idea of "mastering" a technique. Let's go with the idea that it will take 10,000 reps to "master" a technique. Now look at how many possible variables each technique has based on how your opponent attacks. As those who have been at this a while knows, i'm not talking about the mcdojo boys here, each technique must be manipulated to fit the attack if it is to be effective. It's still the same technique just slightly altered for the situation. Now for the sake of argument we will say there is only 10 variations on each technique. In order to truly "master" that technique you must apply those same repetitions to each variation. Those 3.3 months has now turned into 2.75 years, for one technique.

Personally i would rather not "master" a technique but master adaptability. Do the repetitions to the point of not having to analyze each movement but instead of drilling the same technique the same way over and over modify it. Put the focus of repetition on the manipulation of the technique and the transition and not just on the technique. Have a firm grasp of a few "basic" techniques but master the ability to manipulate them and transition into something else when it's not working.

I'm sure many of you know this already but there are still a lot of people in the early stages of their training who think the secret to self defense is knowing thousands of techniques. Some of the best fighters i've seen only knew a hand full of techniques in various ranges of fighting but knew how to manipulate them.
