Example text

These styles become institutes with their explanations of the ‘Way’... Instead of facing combat in its suchness, then, most systems of martial art accumulate a ‘fancy mess’ that distorts and cramps their practitioners and distracts them from the actual reality of combat, which is simple and direct. Instead of going immediately to the heart of things, flowery forms (organized despair) and artificial techniques are ritualistically practiced to simulate actual combat. Thus, instead of ‘being’ in combat these practitioners are ‘doing’ something ‘about’ combat.

Instead of going immediately to the heart of things, flowery forms (organized despair) and artificial techniques are ritualistically practiced to simulate actual combat. Thus, instead of ‘being’ in combat these practitioners are ‘doing’ something ‘about’ combat. (Lee 1975: 14) This argument is central to Bruce Lee’s own sustained critique of institutionalisation. 3 However, the exemplary and representative problem with Bruce Lee’s pragmatic, ostensibly anti-theoretical, anti-institutional stance here is precisely that: it is a stance; necessarily both an interpretation and a pose; both an ‘honest’ interpretation and an affectation.

Or – more precisely – the martial principles evinced by deconstruction are available to any martial art at any time (just as ‘deconstruction’ per se can be said to happen in (m)any contexts outside of the writings of Derrida). But the best example to be found is the often misrecognised martial art of t’ai chi ch’üan (aka: taijiquan or, more casually, simply ‘t’ai chi’). This is because the literal and explicit principles of t’ai chi, as elaborated in the various texts of the T’ai Chi Classics, and encapsulated in tai chi’s ‘Five Word Secret’ are: listen, stick, yield, neutral- Deconstruction is a Martial Art 41 ise, attack.
