The consciousness of self is the greatest hindrance to the proper execution of all physical action.
The great mistake is to anticipate the outcome of the engagement; you ought not to be thinking of whether it ends in victory or in defeat.
The true stillness is the stillness in movement.
Defeat is not defeat unless accepted as a reality-in your own mind.
Forget about winning and losing; forget about pride and pain. Let your opponent graze your skin and you smash into his flesh; let him smash into your flesh and you fracture his bones; let him fracture your bones and you take his life! Do not be concerned with escaping safely- lay your life before him!!
Don't strive to become, but be.
