Before I learned the art, a punch was just a punch, and a kick, just a kick. [Sense data, ignorance, confusion]
After I learned the art, a punch was no longer a punch, a kick, no longer a kick. [Analysis, categorization, connection, formalization]
Now that I understand the art, a punch is just a punch and a kick is just a kick. [Quintessence, understanding, internalization]
— Bruce Lee
