INSTINCTUAL RESPONSE- BLEND AND FLOW TO CONTROL!
Refining the "ability to blend" is a lifelong path that must be cultivated and explored; martial art styles are templates to guide you to technical proficiency. Although that is an essential component for personal development, there is a way to cut through and avoid the accumulation and glorification of style.
In truth, you are your own style, you kick, punch, grapple instinctively, even within the context of style; every physical action, mental thought or psychological strategy is unique to "you and you alone" even if someone trained in the identical systems you did, the results will rarely be the same!
THERE IS ONLY ONE YOU!
