I agree, that should be an interesting read. Interesting theory. Exactly how many 'real' fights have you been in to test this theory of yours? I'm not talking about competition with rules, or randori in the dojo with rules, we're talking 'real' fights where the other guy is trying to kill you and you're trying to prevent that from happening. Any at all? Don't feel bad about it, the vast majority of martial artists haven't ever been in a 'real' fight either, nor will they be. There are as many reasons for doing martial arts as there are people doing them, koryu included. If you like to believe that you are learning how to have a chance in a 'real' fight, then that's as good a reason as any other. However, it's important that we each be honest with ourselves and understand that the only way to determine if the training you are receiving is valid in a 'real' fight, is to engage in them. Of course, this means that you'll either die, or be locked away for assault or murder, but that's just the way of today's society. Luckily, in today's society, the odds of any of us being required to actually test our training are exceedingly small. To be pushing forth your theories without having actually tested said theories indicates either ignorance or inexperience, in my opinion.
