TRUTH CANNOT BE STRUCTURED OR DEFINED
One cannot express himself fully when imprisoned by a confining style. One can never express himself fully as long as one lives within a society. There are always societal forces affecting ones thinking and behavior. If a style fits ones beliefs, personality, etc., then one may express himself fully in the style. Combat "as is" is total, and it includes all the "is" as well as "is not," without favorite lines or angles. Lacking boundaries, combat is always fresh, alive and constantly changing. Your particular style, your personal inclinations, and your physical makeup are all 'parts' of combat, but they do not constitute the 'whole' of combat. Should your responses become dependent upon any single part, you will react in terms of what "should be" rather than to the reality of the ever changing "what is." Remember that while the whole is evidenced in all its parts, an isolated part, efficient or not, does not constitute the whole.
TKDTutor Comments: While this may be true to some extent, one must train in parts, one cannot train in the whole. To train in a spot, one trains to perfect each of its parts. For example, a golfer practices driving, putting, clipping, etc. Since we cannot train to be proficient at responding to every possible attack (each part of the whole), we train to respond to the most common attacks (parts). If you have no response to common attacks, then you will lose.
