No Such Thing

I've gone beyond good tactics and bad tactics. It depends on context. Some tools are good for some things and some are bad for other things. A wine glass is terrible for hammering nails, but it's awesome for holding wine. Does this mean that it's a crappy tool? No, it just means it's not a hammer.

You need to move beyond good and bad and understand that no matter what the context this stuff might not work. Solutions in the martial arts are fictional. It's only what may work, not what will work.

It's important to remember that even handguns aren't that effective, but if it's life or death, I'll probably put my money on my gun rather than my punches. The handgun is still much more dangerous whether it works or not.
