So you're not going to explain to me why your ordering is correct?

You know, if I disagree with you, telling me that you're right is not the way to get me to agree. Why is your ordering correct? Also, if your conclusion is misunderstood, then maybe a small edit is in order to make sure no misunderstanding is possible.

Where do you jam your toe? On the mat? On your partner? In your gi? In your partner's gi?

In addition, I disagree with your conclusion. It is not always a life and death situation, and I am highly hesitant to mark this as my answer, since as I understand it, your conclusion simply disregards everything else you wrote (I may be wrong, of course, but that is what I understand).

Interesting answer. I need to digest it. I believe you may want to reorder some paragraphs. For instance, I would put the list from "Where is my exit" to "How far..." BEFORE "What am I prepared to die for" and "what am I prepared to kill for", as it is an escalation in the necessity of the situation. This keeps consistency with your earlier scenario explaining the mistakes you've made, and when your training took over.

@tacone Italy is not that big, so it's not overbroad.

Twice a week is maintenance... Three times a week is improvement. I agree with you. This being said, if you're serious about the arts, and come from a competitive physical background, you should be able to train on your own.
