If you were only permitted to give a single hint to a prospective MAist, what would it be?

To start things off, here's mine-

Do not think, feel and keep the movements flowing into each other.

The Mind is the most powerful weapon. If intermediate or advanced.

If new.

Listen, Learn and apply.

Right, because knowing and learning the movements magically happens. Whether you rely on feeling and flow or not, you still have to think. Seriously, what are you going to do when your opponent is not touching you? Feel the air? Sure you can sense rhythm and timing, but this requires a certain thought process, and this is called thinking.

Next time your training, pay attention to how much you think when your feeling. Youll be surprised.
