Six diseases that a fighter can have

  1. The desire for victory;
  2. The desire to resort to cunning techniques;
  3. The desire to display all that has been learned;
  4. The desire to terrify the enemy;
  5. The desire to be passive;
  6. The desire to get rid of any evil that can affect you.

Bruce Lee describes the desire itself as a problem. Desiring is a bond, but so is the desire not to desire. To be detached, then, is to be free.

How you breathe will dictate everything from the type of athlete you are, to how you sleep, to how your body feels and looks.

At the core of breathing is connecting with our core. Our breath does not originate in our lungs or in our chests, but from deep within.
