    I suggest you can also muster genuine aggression from pure determination. And the ability to fight through shock is more about self defence than the ring.

    I don't disagree with the idea of mustering genuine aggression from determination. To me, determination isn't really an emotion. That's probably just semantics, though, so if you were including determination in your prior comments, then we're probably more in agreement than I thought.

    Personally, while I very much like the style of say kicks in a TKD pattern, for me the holding it out to show you had 'control' definitely did develop bad habits for me. where it has taken a long time to constantly force myself to 'snap back' straight away at any sort of instinctual level.
