The Six diseases

The goal of training in the martial arts is to overcome the six kinds of disease:

The desire for victory,

The desire to relay on technical cunning,

The desire to show off,

The desire to psychologically overwhelm the opponent,

The desire to remain passive in order to wait for an opening,

The desire to become free of these diseases,
