Be Water My friend

Watching the Bruce Lee Story on TV late last night and remembered this clip from an interview he did back in the day.

Lee was tired of the strictness and fixed positions of many traditional martial arts.  He created Jeet Kune Do with the idea that you have to be ready to adapt to any situation in a fight.   It’s almost never going to go the way you want.  It’s the same with fitness and wellness.  If you specialize in one area you are undoubtedly going to be weak in one if not many other areas.  Specialization is obviously key to be competitive in a sport of your choosing.   Life, however, isn’t always so forgiving and you have to be ready physically and mentally for whatever comes at you.  Ready to adapt.   “Be like water my friend”
