It is no accident either that the first principle in the "Art of War" is about, "knowledge," and the second that follows is "Planning." Without knowledge all the planning in the world will not bring about victory. It is said that any war or fight or business transaction will not succeed without first knowledge and then planning.
Sun Tzu speaks about precise and detailed planning but also puts an equal amount of emphasis on being flexible. He goes on to state, " ... one who can modify his tactics according to the enemy situation shall be victorious and may be called the divine commander. ... "
I have written in this blog about having solid and unchanging strategies while allowing complete and total flexibility of the tactics used to implement said strategies. Mine are to move quickly in close, unbalance and end the fight (something similar to this in general). How I do that depends greatly on many factors but one thing remains true, it must be flexible and fluid enough to end the fight, period.
If one wants to excel in martial systems the one thing that must be pursued most vigorously is eduction, knowledge acquisition. The ken-po goku-i is that "koan" once unlocked promotes a much greater ability or desire to extend one's eduction, knowledge. One unlocked it presents a set of "keys" that unlock the entire universe that contains all knowledge. The opening of the mind to the possibilities allows the mind to connect to the infinite universe of knowledge that all humans are capable of attaining, understanding and utilizing in life.
