I disagree with 1.47 " very technical - difficult to build, easy to use"
The other way round if anything. It's a straight forward art conceptually and as a system.
Only easy to use if you make regular sparring a priority. I found I could make some stuff work well and take whats useful.
Same with any art, though some people could make anything work.

Easy to use is a bit of an MA fallacy to make your art seem superior (but actually reveals conceit).
Most interesting part of discussion was about MA as basis for turning life around/replacement for addiction etc.
Probably a greater benefit than making someone a better fighter in many cases.

I'd say most definitely a greater benefit in just about every case. Even in societies or environments with a very high crime rate or other threat factors.
Do not make the mistake of giving up the near in order to seek the far.

Kung Fu = Hard work.

What is the work? What is the actual purpose of kung fu? You only have to practice any martial art a little bit to understand the true purpose.
