Words And Theory

Words and theory are not a substitute for the physical and mental training required to polish one's Kung Fu.  Yet, they are an essential part of the learning process, allowing the mind to process commands and concepts that help the body move in a special, Kung Fu way. 

-- Adam Hsu (1941 -), martial artist and essayist known for his expertise in various forms of Chinese martial arts, The Sword Polisher's Record; The Way of Kung Fu (1998)
