I got a PM from a newbie asking if I could reccomend some posts for him to read so he would not have to go through so much chaff to get to the wheat. It seems like a reasonable request. But I thought it better to open up the conversation to everyone. So I am going to start things off with a great post by Snake Plisskin that I think of whenever I see someone try to talk about how tought their training is. You can find the original post here. http://www.martialartsplanet.com/forums/showthread.php?t=44771&page=3&pp=15 Any more great posts?
