It is wise for a man without fear to avoid meeting a man without pity

Odd. I had come to believe this was the Purpose for which one trained.

There are many circumstances that exist in this world due to the motives of pity-less individuals.

If one cannot stand before such people, uncowed by one's own fear, and do the right thing, for what purpose have we trained? FWIW.

Best Wishes,

Bruce

man, are you off. it's all about controlling and managing fear, not muting or erasing fear.
Since fear is a lifelong teacher, a person without fear is unwise by definition.
A person who cannot control that fear is untrained.

The man with fear knows to respect the lion, he walks the savannah armed, alert and only when necessary.

The man who truly has no fear merely goes for a stroll through the long grass in sandals taking with him nothing but a smile......

You were so anxious to get out a response you didn't even consider my post. If you had actually read the post, instead of looking for some way to feed your narcissism, you would realize that you just repeated what I wrote.

Best Wishes,

Bruce

Fact is that most of the posts, in fact, most of the themes for the posts pander to the most pedestrian views of martial arts. The result seems to be that even when something productive is offered most folks here simply don't know what to do with it. Case in point.

I offered to put a project very dear to my heart out on the table for people to discuss. The response was that I was "advertising. Well and good. Moderators took whatever actions they thought necessary. However--- THATS as far as things went. I don't see that anyone took the opportunity to actually talk about how things are organized or written or communicated. The discussion stopped with moderators pointing out that there had been an infraction. Now, maybe the folks here are happy with the level at which things are examined. Thats fine. But don't take exception to me saying that there is plenty of room for improvement and actually DOING something about it. Thoughts?

Best Wishes,

Bruce

G2BH, I find it hugely amusing to be accused of narcisism by a man who takes every opertunity to tailor his posts in such a way to inferr his superiority of knowledge and 'martial attitude' over all other forum members. Narcissus is famous for examining his reflection, in respect to your criticism of me, i suggest you follow his example and look in the mirror.

I don't know why this thread is under Martial Arts Books...I am finding in intensely amusing and think it should be moved to Chat.
