Food for Thought
A glancing thought on martial arts, couched in the form of an old joke:
Steve and Joe are out in the north woods hiking when, ahead of them, a nine-hundred pound grizzly bear ambles out onto the trail. The bear doesn't see them at first, but it will soon enough
Steve whispers to Joe: "Man, I'm glad I wore my running shoes!"
Joe, who knows a lot more about bears than Steve, whispers back, "That won't matter, idiot -- you can't outrun a grizzly!"
Whereupon Steve says, "I don't have to outrun him, I only have to outrun you ... "
