Make no mistake. I admire martial arts and its practitioners. They spend years of training their body and mind into a "singularity" of "being" which most other people are never able to reach. As a life philosophy I see the benefits of these "arts"; as a practical means of self-defence against determined attackers ... it fails. Me ... I will just give my money and bid them to use it well, my life is worth a lot more than mere material possessions.

"All knowledge is ultimately self-knowledge." Martial Arts is about how you understand your own body and it's relation to your space and how you interact with another person. It's not really about fighting at all. (I know this may seem like a contradiction :wink: )
