I include wrestling/bjj/luta livre/judo/whatever in this. I'd like to know peoples' attitudes towards their martial art. When you are being shown techniques, do you just learn them without question, or do you find yourself asking "what situation would I use this in? would it work if... etc."? Do you consider your success in competition as a benchmark of how you would perform in a real confrontation, or don't you give a shit? Do any of you completely separate your training from real life in such a way that you accept your belt rank may have no bearing on how confident you are of coming out on top if you're attacked? And don't you just hate it when you go to the toilet in work, you go into the far left cubicle (leaving three vacant cubicles to your right) and some guy comes in and goes into the cubicle right next to you? What's that all about?
