Not from my own experience, but from Mr Miyagi lol! He explained the two rules of Karate:

"Rule number one:
Karate for defense only.

Rule number two
First learn rule number one"

A bit silly in the context of this thread maybe, but an important thing to remember as to the responsibilty of being a martial art student IMHO.

Taught to me by my uncle;

Rule no.1; The best defense, is a good offense.

So basically, you won't get attacked if you pre-emptively attack everything you see.

First rule's eh?

Talk only if it will decline the risk of violence. If it won't, save your breath and attention for what is to come.

If you decide to strike, mean it.

If someone deserves hitting once, they deserve hitting repeatedly.

Wear a box

It is not easy , no matter what anyone says.Physicaly or mentaly. There are no fast track,one hour,one week ways to defend yourself in a real, violent situation.

leave the Ego at the door.Everything you do can be better.

Power,power,power.How can you get more power and still be tacticaly and defensivly ok?
If you have to fight back,full body and mental intensity in every shot.

Your shins are too weak! Kick the bag until your legs are hard like concrete!!!

*Snap*

Who gave you the permission to have your leg snap into 2?! Get up! Kick with the other leg!!

(Talk about cruelty)

How does that work? Doesn't it imply that you started from a seated position?

Relax!

Don't kick with a TKD person, box with a boxer, or wrestle with a wrestler.
