  1. Appreciating the dedication you put into your website and in depth information you provide.
    It’s great to come across a blog every once in a while that isn’t the same out of date rehashed
    information. Fantastic read! I’ve bookmarked your site and I’m adding your RSS feeds to my Google
    account.

  2. Well to me Martial Arts means respect and discipline. I have trained in different Martial arts now for
    much more than 21 years. I have seen much people appear and disappear
    but one more thing that I have noticed happens to be the respect and
    discipline which has changed those peoples perception of life.

    Small children that have started which were on the wrong side of the tracks, always in trouble and no idea how to respect other kids.
    Put them in a controlled environment with discipline and fighting and they soon start to understand.

    Martial arts is a great technique for kids in their teens and
    adults to get rid of their aggression without hurting or bullying anyone.

    • Yes discipline may be used effectively to correcting self destructive behavior in our youth but what it may also produce is something even more destructive to a person. What I mean by that is that discipline alone may subvert a complex emotional being into a robotic creature that is unfeeling, unloving but very well regimented. The martial arts certainly can be useful as a skill to defend oneself against abuse but not at the cost of one’s humanity, our ability to question authority, our ability to make free choices, or to think for ourself. There is always a danger that excessive discipline may dividing us from our heart, from the Devine judgment within that guides us and deepens our feeling of compassion and love for our fellow man. Cultivation of compassion and love should always proceed any efforts at self discipline.
      Namaste
      Ava
