A true martial artist is a person who studies one of these three ideas exclusively. When an art is studied in this way, the subconscious quickly learns how to respond to almost every conceivable attack. However, if we mix the arts, strange things happen. For example, if the subconscious has been taught to block with left hand and strike with the right when dealing with a right hand punch, the response will be instant. However, if we also have studied avoiding the punch, our subconscious becomes confused and throws the decision back to the conscious mind. The difference is that the subconscious makes a decision in 1/25 of a second, whereas the conscious mind makes a decision in ¾ of a second, approximately 18 times faster. For this reason, it is best to pick a martial art that best suits you and specialize in it without mixing it with other arts. Any martial artist who has truly internalized his or her art will not make the mistake of being seduced into playing the opponent's game.
Although each defense method has advantages, each also has its disadvantages. When fighting a person of another art, always fight to break their fighting rules. Since they train to obey the rules, they will be at a disadvantage.
