    The nature of everything today why put in the work just hope for the best leave it to someone else someone else should deal with it.Its the same old story of the underachiever spouting 5 shot snubby, less than 4 yards bla bla.
    They don't know what they don't Know and use faulty logic to cover for laziness and cowardice.

    I train for younger faster bigger stronger opponents.........and I train to ruthlessly smoke their ass.

    I was at a Christmas parade this weekend with the family. We were hanging out enjoying the music, and I see(profiling like a m...fer) a middle age middle eastern man that stood out in the crowd like a whore in church. I made him feel uncomfortable as hell as he walked up and down the street. I already knew what I had to do if I needed to.....

    I train to beat.... me. The me of today should be stronger and more skilled than the me of yesterday. If I strive to do this every day my enemy won't stand much of a chance.

    Dang it, Greg. That’s what I was going to say, then I read your post at the bottom of the thread.

    I most certainly and quite easily could beat the me of several years ago, and the divide gets bigger all the time.

    I concur with most of the things said here in - I expect my enemy to be trained just as I am, and although in most cases they aren't (tweaker problem on the property) I want to put some heavy on the one that doesn't kneel.

    I always prefer to train from the view point that whomever the bad guys are they are better then I am and there are more of them regardless of reality.
    This...I train to be outnumbered and for adversity, expecting that Murphy is on their side, so I have to beat him too.

    I agree with Greg completely. I have held this believe for a very long time. I train to beat someone who is highly trained, highly motivated, well equipped subject who is willing to sacrifice and suffer for his cause and has a detailed knowledge of the internal workings of the local infrastructure and public safety network.


    My wrestling coach said I best many moons ago. Train for the champ not the chump. If you can beat the champ than the chump is warm up, just don't underestimate ANY enemy.

    As has been stated in more ways than one in the above posts, never underestimate your opponent(s). Have the mindset that they are faster /stronger/skillful/treacherous/ruthless and will kill you and those you love...Train, prepare and act accordingly. Simple advice really.

    I think this could be combine into a set of both macro and micro goals. A daily goal of being better then you were yesterday with the overall goal of preparing for a larger more skilled group. That way each goal can push and pull the other forward.
