Talent

Teacher: I see your talents have gone beyond the mere physical level. Your skills are now at the point of spiritual insight. I have several questions. What is the highest technique you hope to achieve ?

Student: To have no technique.

Teacher: Very good. What are your thoughts when facing an opponent?

Student: There is no opponent.

Teacher: And why is that?

Student: Because the word “I” does not exist.

Teacher: So, continue…

Student: A good fight should be like a small play, but played seriously. A good martial artist does not become tense, but ready. Not thinking, yet not dreaming. Ready for whatever may come. When the opponent expands, I contract. When he contracts, I expand. And when there is an opportunity, I do not hit. It hits all by itself.

Teacher: Now, you must remember: the enemy has only images and illusions behind which he hides his true motives. Destroy the image and you will break the enemy.

    Student: To have no measure

    Teacher: Very good. What are your thoughts when facing an obstinate bouncer?

    Student: There is no bouncer.

    Teacher: And why is that?

    Student: Because the word “sober” does not exist.

    Teacher: So, continue…

    Student: A good night out should be like a small play, but played seriously. A good drinker does not become tense, but ready. Not sober, yet not drunk. Ready for whatever may come. When the bartender serves, I drink. When he stops, I request more. And when there is an opportunity, I do not do shots. They shoot all by themselves.

    Teacher: Now, you must remember: the enemy has only images and illusions of prohibition behind which he hides his true motives. Destroy the image and you will cash the enemy’s will and kegs.
