Anti-martial arts propaganda or a legitimate issue?
I will admit this is in part one of the reasons why I feel children should be doing a grappling art. I don't believe most of them are going to generate the power in striking to cause any real issues.
I would say that in general Martial Arts are safer than say Football(American). As well as many other hobbies.
study patterns & free will
hello there fellow artists of the martial kind!
after writing a youtube message to "studypatterns",
on sending, youtube notified me it's not possible.
so i'd like to share the message here
since this thread is related to it,
if you will allow me to do so.
title: free will
hello fellow researcher,
i just saw some of your videos,
which are very well made
in my opinion.
while watching, a question came to my mind
and i wanted to convey it to you
in hope of a response,
yet i'd like to leave that up to you.
do you believe that
if a student of martial arts
is willing to participate in a fight
and fully aware of the possible consequences,
and a teacher asks this student to attack him/her,
is it moral or does it do justice to the student
if this student agrees to participate
with respect to free will?
thank you :)
p.s. in my life i have met both good and bad people
in various areas of (competitive) martial arts.
films such as 'the karate kid' (1984),
which is actually one of my youth favorites,
also accurately demonstrates abuse of the dojo sensei.
p.s.2. i have experienced abuse for many years
and am now learning (or remembering)
how to use chi/energy, not for attack or defense,
but how to be more compassionate towards attackers.
although i have noticed that most (or all) of the teachers in the videos depicted on:
- youtube -> user -> STUDYPATTERNS -> videos
are actually legitimate, and provide great info,
i have noticed that there are also many teachers who are not,
most of them obviously not allowing any videos to be taken during these practices.
perhaps interesting to note that i am integrating a natural chi method
that closely resembles what Dondrup Dorje teaches here:
- youtube -> watch -> S6KxA6H4aUg
