In my school, Taekwondo's Chon-ji and Dan-gun teach a very different approach to fighting. In Chon-ji you have this really powerful basic moves that seek to break and strike with lots of commitment. But the opposite is not true of Dan-gun, meaning that it doesn't teach a lack of commitment - it does however teach a very important lesson ... not all fighting requires you to switch of your thinking brain and put 100% brawn into your attack. There is the case to gauge the opponent, size up the situation, decide on the most opportune moment ... and then make your move. Switch off your opponent - don't switch off yourself!
