Sample text

Let’s try with real knives now’. Suddenly the distance changed, what was very short range suddenly became very long range and what was fast, skilful and flowing became slow, stuttered and amateur. The introduction of pressure puts every thing into true perspective. That’s what Animal Day will do for you, give you a true perspective of REAL, so forget all this bollocks about we daren’t practice full out because our art is too dangerous, try it full out and see just how dangerous it is, I guarantee that it will not be so dangerous as you think it will be.

Most of what goes in a real fight is not in the physical it’s psychological. Openers, weakeners, primers and even finishing blows are secured with dialogue, the attacker using verbal missiles to attack the psyche. All I knew, all my art had taught me, was the physical response, a little like teaching someone how to dive in the swimming pool but not teaching him how to swim. It is true that fighting arts teach you distancing and timing etc, but the distancing in the street is different from that of the dojo and so is the timing because the fighting is so frantic and staccato, it is also different because it’s enforced by the enemy and the environment.

It all changes. I was talking to Jim McDonnell (European pro boxing champion) yesterday about this exact thing and he told me about the time he and one of his stable mates met to fight for a vacant title (this story is told by Jim in Fear - the friend of exceptional people). Now in the gym and on paper the two fighters 46 Animal Day were absolutely equal on all counts and when they sparred in the gym there was nothing in it. Every one said what a cracking fight it was going to be, all expecting it to go the full distance.
