I think Cyclops decided to become the best hand to hand fighter he could be after Storm made him look like Thelma from Scooby Doo.Grayson wrote:

Come to think of it, the majority of the X-Men have never really been the best when it comes to making their own decisions.
Seriously though, there was an issue a few years ago were Scott and Emma took a vacation to the savage land. There she described Scott's tactical thought process while he was fighting a Triceratops. He has found a way to incorporate his instinctive ability to reflect his eye beams off objects to make bank shots in to his fighting style. Basically the thought prosces that is hard wired for his mutant power is being repurposed for high speed combat strategy.
Though I also agree that since Cyclops is a leader, he takes his training a little more seriously than he would otherwise. I know that is usually the case for me when I am in a position of leadership or when I was teaching. Cyclops having to carry the resposibility of weather people live or die by his choices would definatly push him to want to be the best he could possibly be. Not for him self, but for his team and more ressently species.
