Questioning a Bruce Lee Quote
Here is how the quote goes: "I fear not the man who practice 10,000 kicks at once but I fear the man who practice one kick 10,000 times." I understand where he was coming from. If you practice one kick diligently, it will grow. The more you practice something, the more it will become your second nature. However, say you know how to fight unarmed, what if there is someone else who not only is proficient at unarmed combat but he can handle weapons so well, especially the guns! Your unarmed skills cannot match a gun, that's the reality of the world. Wake up! I do not know exactly when he spoke that quote but come on, that is some outdated thought. Do you really think one technique can help you survive any situation? Do you really think people are going to fear you just because you know some kicks? If so, slap yourself in the head right now. And for goodness sake, why do you have to fear any man? Do not have fear. You have nothing to be afraid of! Why? Because the man is a human being just like you. It doesn't matter how big or small he is, he is just a human being. So do not fear the man, love the man! Why is that everything has to be based on fear all the time. The world has gone through that enough already. We are too focused on fighting techniques too much. How about we learn to accept ourselves 100%? Quoting my buddy Ralph right there. Haha. That is what we need to do. We have fear because we do not love ourselves; therefore, a lot of insecurities have built up. We need to move into ourselves. That way, we will not have to fear anyone and more importantly preparing to fight anyone! That's what the Martial Art should guide ourselves towards: Peace. I know there are some Bruce Lee fanatics who would harass me but I don't care anymore. I am just going to express myself until I die.
