I am interested in beginning with martial arts and am exploring different options. ILC appears to be a martial art that connects both mind and body in a practical way.
It appeals to me because it is based on Zen principles and comes from a place of awareness, rather than brute force.
However, I noticed that there is no ground fighting. How would an ILC master succeed over a Brazilian jiu jitsu master?
Also, how effective is ILC in combat? Would it be effective if used with a Kickboxing opponent for example?
Are there any limitations to it? If so, what are these?
