Even one of the old forms of discipline can prove useful in a variety of modern applications. What do you think about this new implementation of the U.S. military? Do you think it's feasible for them to look into this and have acceptable results? Or are they simply wasting their time because it's not a practicality in this day and age?

you can toughen the body all you want but if you never experienced combat your going to be scared shit-less. A trained mind can ignore many different kinds of pain, whether its being shot or hunger. just because its old doesn't make it obsolete.
