The Myth of Style VS Fighter (Kung Fu for the Slow and Unexceptional)

Stop me if you’ve heard this one.

“The fighter makes the style.”
“The fight in the fighter is more important than the style they practice.”
“Any style is good if you apply yourself.”

I’m not sure how this myth got started, but I can tell you why it sticks around.

Most martial artists don’t have reliable training methods.

The don’t use a carefully designed, step by step, curriculum that works for the vast majority of people the vast majority of the time.

  • Instead they have some forms
  • Some techniques
  • a few applications
  • some sparring

It’s all lumped together and the only folks who do well with it are exceptionally gifted or hardworking.

…but instead of examining the curriculum for problems they just blame it on their students.

Thing is, the “best” NASCAR driver can not win the Indy 500 in my ‘99 Ford Escort.

I recently saw it put this way,

“Material beats method”

Basically it doesn’t matter how hard you study or how good your teacher is. If you pick the wrong material you won’t get very far.

I don’t know about you but I’m not particularly gifted and I make procrastination an art. So I need a system that will work for the slow and unexceptional.

I need the most efficient and effective methods I can find.

Fortunately for me, Sigung Clear has been studying and researching self defense for over 40 years.

He’s constantly looking for the best and most effective training methods.

…So you don’t have to be gifted, or talented, or exceptional.

All you have to do is show up, do the work and keep at it.

The Clear Defense Method is the distillation of Sigung Clear’s 40 years of training.

We’ve taught it to all types, Old, Young, strong & feeble.

It can be learned quickly & effectively. And it works, even for the slow and unexceptional.
