I always joke...I have confronted most of my inner demons, but I like to keep them on the payroll........Aggression fall into that category I would think.  Sometimes when I'm trying to get some douchbag drunk out the door while I work as a bouncer, I let a little bit of the madness show in my eyes..how much pleasure I would actually get hurting him..and that does that trick ;D.  Now it doesn't work all the time, but it is little bit of controlled aggression that's helped me.

Joe do you think things like Bluers old  "panic attacks" or terms like "flip the switch" imply an aggression that's to uncontrolled or is that just a different animal then this talk? ???

Hi Cliff

In my opinion, the difference between controlled aggression and aggression is anger and rage.  Controlled aggression is trained aggression to accomplish the end goal- survival.  It is a “switch” that can be learned both through the learning process and remembering past experiences that evoked that particular energy.  The key to it all is being able to function under imminent danger aggressively while maintaining a focused concentration.  If anger and rage takes over, you might still be able to be aggressive, but you will never foster focused concentration.  This is where a martial artist of twenty-some years falls apart after being consumed by anger and rage; it is the lack of focused concentration that causes the “log jam” effect, not the twenty-some years of martial arts training.

I like that analysis Joe, thanks.  I think the anger management deal may be a bit over-rated.  I knew a couple guys who thrived on the extreme level of rage and could clean up the room.  On the other hand, I've seen experienced fighters with blank looks do the same.

There must be a fine line between the two states, rage and controlled aggression.  If you zen down your mental state to try and control your anger, it just might lead to your demise.  If you fire up your anger engine and direct it at the SOB, you get the adrenaline rush and edge you need to take the blows...go ahead hit me, it will only make me madder...kind of deal.  And that works a lot of the time!  Its a fine line I tell ya.

Thanks again Joe!
