Re: The meaning of "Aliveness/Live" Training
I think it’s safe to say as your proficiency level increases so will the pressure in the attacks.
In level 1&2 the drilling and conditioning intensity might be a little higher just to put you into a state of duress and that part may actually lesson as you grow deeper in the system. The crazy high impact run back and forth etc stuff.
However as you gain technique there’s more expected of you.
I remember walking into the school and with my bag still on my shoulder leaning in the class to say hi to the instructor, Christian says “oh you’re just in time to help me with a drill.” I drop my bag thinking he just wants to demo on me. He tells the class to grab a weapon (gun, stick, knife, long-gun)
Then he says, OK everyone, attack Sean. And suddenly I had 20 people trying various ways to kill me. After a couple minutes he yells break and says “that’s the drill”
I call that drill “shark tank” btw
Point is the intensity is there its just different.

I believe that self-defense is a moral imperative, and that illegitimate force and illegal violence must be met with righteous indignation and superior violence.
But hey, thats just me.
