So while on vacation with some friends, I got into a discussion about what it means to test oneself with regards to martial arts skill/technique. As a professional test engineer, I tried to explain some basic test engineering methodology that I go about testing software/hardware on the job and how to relate that to martial arts. So while I don't write/blog/post too much on martial arts as I spend most of my day writing test cases, results etc, I actually kinda like what I wrote/discussed and would like some feedback on it. Also, I do need some better examples as I'm a little light on a couple of them. I'm hoping this prompts some intelligent discussions so I thought I'd throw it up here and see what people think. I hope someone finds this useful. http://www.theredbaron.net/RedBaron/Reds_Blog/Entries/2011/9/17_Reproducibility_In_Martial_Arts.html FYI, I put it up on my blog as its too long to post here on the forum. I hope this doesn't violate some forum rules about posting links.
