Is there an end to learning about martial systems?

Simply, no .... but if you allow yourself to remain glued to the thought that all there is is a few techniques once mastered ends the lessons then you can say simply, yes.

How would one find the continuance of learning martial systems? Simply through open-minded practice. If you allow for the concept and principle of dualistic monism, yin-in-yang principles, where one never achieves neutrality but rather rides the ebb and flow of yin-n-yang as things change, grow and achieve fluidity then the lessons will never, ever end.

If you are always allowing for greater quality through self-reflection then it never ends. If you are always allowing for a change in quantity toward knowledge then it never ends. If you are always allowing for a greater all encompassing structure to your practice, training and learning then it never ends. As long as you allow for changes within through its constituent yin and yang elements then it never ends.

I am just now finding after fifty-eight years of life that it never ends and the excitement of getting up to live life is that change is inevitable and I try to embrace it as a good thing leading to a greater understanding that all things are changing, impermanent and open.

If not for the principles that are the universe we would learn all there is to know in a short period and then the reason for life's many cycles would end and thus our existence. Existence is to find the question, answer the question and then live the question until living inspires a new question with a new answer and the cycle is never-ending, perpetual.

Here lies the lesson of martial system practice and training, to allow for a never-ending cycle that perpetuates upon itself from within each of us. Life therefore would never be boring but full of life's changes. A good thing I think. Therefore I am :-)
