Wise words from Bruce…

"I fear not the man who has practiced 10,000 kicks once, but I fear the man who has practiced one kick 10,000 times” -Bruce Lee

How do we acquire a skill?

Practice.

Acquiring multiple skills at once, means watering down your available time to practice each one, which may lead to sub optimal development of those skills.

My old Bruce Lee Fighting Method books taught only 4-5 kicks, and all but 1 of them came off the right foot!!  The philosophy behind his art of Jeet June Do, was to keep it super simple, to practice just a few basic movements, over and over, until they were exceptional in their execution and could be performed on pure instinct.

Minimal tools in the arsenal meant the most effective fighting arsenal.. no confusion or distraction, just eye strike, throat punch, groin kick.

Same as CrossFit - squat, deadlift, pullup, press, these movements are the eye strike and groin kick of exercise :)

Practice them till they are exceptional.
