That scene in the Lord of the Rings is one of the wiser ones in all pop culture. Just because you have the power to do something doesn’t mean you should even if you have good intentions. (And yet I’ve heard people criticize the Lord of the Rings on that very part.) So it was good to see how it can apply to martial arts and self-defense.
Knowing yourself is hard, though. I’ve known people who had almost the opposite view to the way they really are. I knew a kid in junior high that was incredibly vain about his looks despite being as ugly as sin. That is the reason you have to listen to others views.
