Martial Frustrations

Why is it so many people who practice Chinese Martial Arts especially internal are so particular about body positioning, movement etc. cannot fight for shit. Always explaining how this position your structure is such and such or that you have more power in x position, these people to be honest I believe could not fight their way out of a paper bag. I am not bashing but I would rather learn through experience and see if you can actually do what you say. When fighting and moving from my own personal experience is a dynamic situation where people are moving from one position to another. Personally for fighting even though your body should have a basic structure I think principles should be emphasized more and less emphasis on stylistic differentiations such as the correct bong sau or tan sau occurs at X degree. Try stopping a full powered hook with a tan sau and see what happens. Anyways this is just my rant….I’d rather just play or spar and see what works for me no matter what I am doing. I got flavors but no style!
