"I start from the position that a martial art is for fighting and/or self defence, so the techniques must have some combat function, that is they are not fundamentally for exercise or physical training, that is the purpose of hojo undo, stretching etc. Miyamoto Musashi said in his book Gorin No Sho: "The true Way of sword fencing is the craft of defeating an enemy in a fight, and nothing other than this." I think that this is true and so it is necessary to develop training methods which develop skills directly applicable to fighting a strong, determined aggressor." - Harry Cook
