You really didn't understand the whole parts of a picture thing. Find a teacher who has done the thing he is training you to do. Try the things the teacher tells you and see if they work. Look around the room and see if they work for other people and to what degree. Use that information to make an assessment of your own development. Test and retest that. I mean this is what I have said about sparring. There is a difference between it works in sparring and it works in sparring against a guy who has won 27 pro fights. And where did I set the bar? Because it wasn't win professional fights. I said prove what you do is real. And you still haven't done that. This is the most amazing thing about this conversation is my performance is so low to what it could conceivably be. There are a couple of jits comps, a mma which I lost and some hard sparring with some quality guys. A heap of pub fights. But we will leave that out for now as it will all be anecdotal. And yet is still so far above the average expectation that it is considered unobtainable. And I am 45. It is not even that people can use old man excuse.
