Tool in a box – a tactical fallacy (part 01)

When it comes down to the conceptualism of tactical techniques, methods or skills - The tool box analogy is by far an analogy which represents a false and mostly unforgiven understanding of the relations between stress and performance. I chose the word unforgiven, because that's how it is – Unforgiven as it tends to be proven wrong just in the moment when things go out of the window and shit is splattered all over the wall. Considering the fact that the majority of people aren't statistically going to get that far in terms of actually fighting a threat, the fundamentals and depth of understanding of this fallacy tend to simply fade away from the sight of the masses, leaving peoples certain that their imaginary box of solutions and tools for every problem or issue, will actually exist when the time comes.

The Combat Stance - Part 02

To learn a simple movement it takes 300-500 repetitions. To change the learned procedure it takes about 5000-7000 reps and as soon as you get tired you fall back into the old pattern.
This may come out of a sports related context but is also expressive for combat.
