    the match then becomes a stand-up wrestling match. He, therefore, if only for that match, becomes a stand-up wrestler. Bruce said water can flow or can crash. The wrestler adjusting to the situation in that manner and not trying to force a preconceived strategy was what allowed him to “flow.” However, if he were to try to resist and push back against the natural current, he would “crash.” The wrestler would’ve crashed if he went into the match with a set strategy, one that was unwilling to…
