Have you ever wondered what makes a great Martial Artist?  What are the key features that, when combined, makes one warrior superior to another?  Or maybe, what is the mindset that one must have to engage in and be successful during combat?  I have often found myself asking these questions throughout my Martial Arts journey and have found that the battle strategy referred to as Furinkazan is really useful in describing what it takes to constantly improve and achieve success.
