"You are exposed to different things depending on what school you learn from and who you're learning from. Some people hit really, really, really hard. They wail on people, whether it's practice, it doesn't matter. When you really get hit like that for the first time, then you understand 'OK, I'm really getting hit here.' There are some things you can't fake. That's why 'real or fake' doesn't really factor into it for me."
