        my fighting philosophy is to preserve life.

        use as much force only as is necessary to stop the fight. whether that force is zero or deadly depends on the nature of my attacker.

        my philosphy is to injure rather than to hurt. In hurting the person's ego gets bruised and adrenaline rages. No one wants that from an opponent.Many times this escalates the fight into a lethal one. Many tough women end up dead in rape scenarios in which they claw at a man or spit on the face or even grabbing the balls. One or the other ends up dead.

        If you proceed to an injuring attack (break his arm or leg for example) the pain will be such that what ever droid or adrenaline rush he's on will be dumped. Plus since he is no longer a threat you yourself will not need to kill him.

        Cruel? He asked for it. you could have been left alone. if you didn't injure him someone else would have killed him.

          My mentality about fighting is cold hard cruelty I erase all emotion from my mind and wait for the moment when my opponent makes a fatal mistake thats when I unleash the furys of hell on them.

            The ideal mindset is an "alpha state" type of thing where time slows down and you're able to respond to the attack automatically. Nerves may wreak havoc before the confrontation but once the game is on countless hours of training and "muscle memory" takes over and you do just what you have to do to win, no more, no less (meaning you have the control to do only as much damage as necessary and not cut somebody's head off with a butter knife because you're afraid of getting punched in the nose). Without that control you're just an undisciplined brawler (which is why newbies in the dojo are often considered dangerous for their unpredictability) The other side of that coin is thast without that control the undisciplined brawler often leaves himself open for the intelligent counter.

              whatever it is the point is to enter a combat situation with no emotional or intellectual burden. To fight and just fight anymore slows you down. The alpha state is the kind of feeling when you're "on a roll". the challenge to the martial artist is to always be "in the zone" or at least be able to enter into it very quickly without conscious thought. Muscle memory or instinct? one infulences the other.

              Muscle memory triggers instinct when something feels familiar (somatic markers as they are called by psychologists). Instinct then also calls a whole array of muscle memory (can you say spider sense?).

              It takes all sorts of stimuli to trigger the brain not one particular thing. That is why martial arts is more about awareness than simply stimuli-response.

                        Brain Cancer

                        The results were surprising; scientists found that a drink with as little as one gram of lemon grass could cause cancer cells to commit suicide through apoptosis, a mechanism that programs cell death. Researchers also found that while lemon grass initiated a chain of events that prompted cancer cells to die, normal healthy cells remained unaffected. While more research is needed, the findings of this study have allowed doctors to say that lemon grass can help prevent certain types of cancer, including brain cancer, and aid in its cure. These findings and the excellent safety profile of the herb have also sparked physicians across the globe to ask their caner patients to drink glasses of hot water with fresh lemon grass steeped in it on the days that they have radiation and chemotherapy treatments.

                        There are no scientific studies on the effect of lemon grass on the brain and headaches. However, practitioners of traditional medicine have sworn by this herb as a cure for headaches. Scientists agree that this possibility is very likely given the properties of lemon grass. The herb is a sedative, which soothes and relaxes those who consume it and clinicians say this alone is often all that is needed to alleviate most stress-induced headaches. The herb also activates the release of serotonin, a chemical in the brain that combats depression, and being depressed can cause headaches.
                        Nervous System Disorders

                        Traditional medicine specialists say that lemon grass is a nervine and has a significant effect on the brain and nervous system disorders. These specialists say the herb can cure the following common conditions:
                        • Shaking hands or limbs
                        • Anxiety
                        • Vertigo
                        • Convulsions
                        • Lack or slowness of reflexes
                        This correlation has led some to speculate that lemon grass may be able to prevent or cure Alzheimer's disease and Parkinson's disease. However, at present there are no studies on the herb and these diseases.
