How work body and mind in the fight?


mind spirit body

The body knows what to do to survive.
The mind is much slower than the body’s instincts and the mind makes a lot of mistakes.
It’s not good if the mind overrides the instinct.
However, you need the mind to defend, because instincts know just to survive.
Therefore, the instinct* is leading the movement, use the mind to modify the instinct, according to the situation**.

* Bruce Lee said: ‘Empty your mind’.
** it may be necessary to strike, it may be necessary just to control somebody, it may be a mistake & you need to mask it for another movement. ?
