Three Components of Martial Arts

Video by Stephan Kesting where he makes some great points about essential components of every martial art:

– Techniques

– Equipment

– Training Methods

These three components combined together make the art or a sport effective. We can have perfect technique but without appropriate equipment and training methodologies, we miss the full potential of the fighting system. I highly recommend this clip.
