I've done 3 Styles of Silat... This is one of the most profound lessons I learnt... "No one is as good as everyone put together..." Meaning, no matter how good you are at fighting, if everyone gangs up on you and they themselves are good at fighting, you will lose. Simply put, you cannot beat everyone at once. Sounds like common sense but it does put it all in perspective, one person can only do so much... So if you go crazy, we'll go crazy on you... It is the "check and balance" in Silat... Important, as it is a weapons Art.
