Why? Because on game-day you can only fake confidence, but you can't fake skills, and you sure as sh*t can't fake cardio vascular/respiratory endurance, stamina, strength, flexibility, power, speed, coordination, agility, balance and accuracy.

New slogan:

"Strong people are easier to kill when they don't possess the general skills of optimal physical competence "

As a department firearms and combatives instructor...I cannot agree with you more.
