Why Train for Violence?

People often find it hard to understand the nature of martial practitioners, spending so much time practicing for the possibility of violence. But I believe that as teachers we have to instruct our students in how to be even more skilled at peace than the average citizen. They should develop a greater capacity for resolving conflict and understand on a deeper level how fragile man is, how life changing violence can be. We, teachers and students, are preparing to reconcile with the various roles we might play in any dispute so that we can apply that skill, that restraint or that certitude in our daily interactions as well. http://ow.ly/2Vmz300iQBN http://ow.ly/i/jtnpa
