Bruce Lee Quote
Though they play an important role in the early stages, the techniques should not be too mechanical, complex, or restrictive. Remember, you are expressing the techniques and not doing the techniques. When attacked, your response is not technique 1, 2, 3, 4, 5--rather you simply move in like sound and echo, without any deliberation. React as when I throw something to you, you catch it. Nothing else.
