Kick, Punch and Stop

I often hear non martial artists say when watching a demonstration of an art or practice scenario. Who's going to grab you like that or I would not just stand there and let them do that technique on me. The truth is the martial artists is merely practicing, it can be compared to a boxer shadow boxing or a boxing sparring match. If the martial artist's partner were to continue his or her attack beyond the planned scenario then it would no longer be practice but fighting or sparring. The planned scenario allows the martial artist to perfect his or her technique concepts in a safe manner. As time and training increase the scenario can become more real.
