How many moves will you learn in martial arts training? You might learn hundreds of techniques throughout your journey, but you don’t necessarily need to master every one…especially not right away.

Can you fit hundreds of tools in your tool box?  Are you bringing a saw to hammer a nail? Because if nails are all you’re going to encounter every day, then you’d better get pretty good with that hammer. You might only need the saw a couple of times a year; spend your time wisely.

Find the techniques that are universal; multi-purpose. Strengthen them.  You are losing time every time you have to scroll through your technique database, so make sure that database is sorted with your strongest, most useful moves right at the top.

If 20 techniques can get the job done, why try to master 300?  The higher the rank, the more we discard.
