It's all about practical application. You have to figure out consistancies and what is just for show. It's the same in grappling in boxing. Minimalism has always been the key to my fights. I don't throw a punch unless I think it's going to do some damage, I don't shoot in unless I think I'm going to knock him down.
The key too all martial arts is the secrets that are behind it. The secrets are the little things that make each move important. Look beyond the physical form and into what it does in a fight. This is really important, especially in arts that only stress the form it is easy to over look what matters for MMArtists.
