Coach Pedro had a great point at Muay Thai tonight.
He said that “all technique is defensive.”
If someone was standing in front of you with their hands tied behind their back, you wouldn’t need to worry about technique. You could just throw a haymaker and punch them in the face.
But that’s not how fighting works. That’s not how life works.
There is risk in everything we do. We use technique to mitigate risk. Proper technique makes is so that we can be offensive while decreasing the risk.
It was a great point that carried over in every aspect of life.
