A while a go I wrote an article (and podcast) called “Karate’s Three Biggest Mistakes” (you can read it here: http://iainabernethy.co.uk/article/karates-three-bigest-mistakes).
Wallace Smedley used the article as inspiration to write a related piece called “The three biggest mistakes in Kung Fu”. I really enjoyed the piece and you can read it via this link:
As is normally the case, the issues are not unique to kung fu and all the observations would certainly apply to certain quarters of the karate world too. I hope you enjoy Wallace’s article and it gets you critically thinking about the way our arts are frequently practised.
All the best,
