I'm watching The Clone Wars and it's almost curious how alike the Jedis advice is to my trainers advise with regards to sword fighting.
I.e. be careful. Study your opponent. Strike when he's vulnerable.
It's also very pleasing to see how far I have come in only five months. I have gone from being an incredibly offensive warrior who got killed much too often, to being a decent warrior who bides his time and take the kills that are offered to him on a plate.
And it feels good to be bought pints of beer afterwards with a nod and a comment on how much better one is compared to just a few months earlier.
