Do you have the need to test your personal limit, what ever this means? I know some guys that are afraid to come to that point, because you don`t have a predicted option what comes next? Is it nessecary to go to your limit in order to reach, what you really want? Why to be afraid of all the options you have?

I will consider your question in a martial arts training context.
I am not yet too concerned about testing my personal limits. Mine is a slow and patient art, very deep, very technical, and since I am only entering my third year I am more interested in truly understanding the basics of the art. When they become second nature, I can start concentrating on my limits.Jason Hooper

Not so much in MA because I'm a sporadic participant and too prone to injury. When I was younger, YES, at nearly everything.

That's what makes it exciting/fun.
Is it nessecary to go to your limit in order to reach, what you really want?
That would depend on what you really want.
Why to be afraid of all the options you have?
Sorry, not sure I understand the question.
