As you know, the last podcast was on the importance of context and here is an interesting video which ties in with that quite nicely (Zach posted it in another thread). At 3 minutes 49 seconds in you can see some UFC fighters fight with some US marines in their context i.e. in the wilds, with multiple enemies, using weapons etc. As you can see, the marines have a pretty easy time of it. To be 100% clear, I’m certain that if you stuck the marines in the cage with any of these guys then it would be a corresponding whitewash the other way. The point is that context determines all and there is no universal ultimate approach that works perfectly in all environments. This is an interesting illustration of that and I hope you find it interesting.
