After a successful first event, the Virtual Fight Tour is coming back with more star-power.

Virtual Fight Tour promoter Jessie Wray announced Monday that the pay-per-view event would be making a second run, this time headlined by defending Virtual Fight Tour champion Bailey Murphy taking on the legendary Jack Felton. Felton is widely considered to be one of the best lightweight fighters in the history of the sport, with numerous world championships over the span of his long career. He has been hot recently, with a runner-up finish to Elijah Everill in the Irish Open open weight championship and an overall grand championship win at the 2020 Compete Nationals. Murphy is on just as impressive of a roll, however, as he is the defending Diamond Nationals lightweight overall grand champion and recently defeated Tyreeke Saint to claim the inaugural Virtual Fight Tour title.

The event will be held on Saturday, September 26th at 6 PM Eastern Standard Time. There will be other fights on the card that are yet to be determined or announced. The Murphy-Felton matchup certainly feels like an unstoppable force will meet an immovable object. Will Team Straight Up's Bailey "B-Reel" Murphy take another step forward on his journey to become the best point fighter in the world, or will Jack "Iceman" Felton of Team All-Stars use his veteran experience to add another win to his résumé?

After all, we wouldn't knowingly train in a style that makes us weaker or worsens our position. The irony of all this is that we don't want to fight our opponent. We prefer to work with what an opponent gives us to turn the tide in our favor, to resolve the situation effectively and efficiently.The Japanese have a word for this: sabaki. It means to work with energy efficiently. When we train with the sabaki mindset, we receive our opponent's attack, almost as a gift. Doing so requires less physical effort and frees up our mental operating system so it can determine the most efficient solution to the conflict.In this essay, I will present a brief history of sabaki, as well as break down the sabaki method using Miyamoto Musashi's five elements
