Martial arts is a kind of intense form of dance

Martial arts is a form of intense dance.
That is, to understand the rhythm and patterns of the other’s movement,
And to intercept and respond.

Even if you do any of the usual dance steps very forcefully,
It will start to resemble martial arts.
A fight between 2 great masters is similar to watching a spectacular and intense dance performance.
Even good sex looks like a rhythmic dance.
There is a great similarity between:
Yoga (the physical forms), Dance, Martial arts, and Sex.

Imo Bruce Lee’s philosophy comes closest to capturing the essence of martial arts.
Its basis is in the binary of Yin-Yang.
It can also be seen as follow-lead, defense-attack, yield-force and so on.
(His martial art Jeet Kune Do itself means Jeet – defense, Kune – attack, do – the way)
