Reality Vs. Mysticism

I do Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu. I love it. However, there are many other aspects of the fighting game including striking, wrestling, etc. When they are all combined together, it is simply known as "Mixed Martial Arts" or as the acronym "MMA". Bruce Lee stressed that tradition and ki (pronounced as "chee", which means "life-force") are useless in a real fight scenario. Bruce Lee's martial art of Jeet Kune Do is a collaboration of all of the effective parts of different martial art forms; MMA is essentially Jeet Kune Do.

Observe how far ki gets you in a real fight. Apparently the Kiai Master doesn't even need to come in contact with his opponents to defeat them. Something surely doesn't make sense here...

As you can see, ki and the like get you nowhere. They do not exist. I chose this because it is a prime example of illogical myths and tradition versus stone-cold reality. Face it.
