When engaged in combat, the vanquishing of thine enemy can be the warrior's only concern...
This is the first and cardinal rule of combat...
Second rule is suppress all human emotion and compassion...
This truth lies at the heart of the art of combat. Once it is mastered... Thou shall fear no one...
