A B C

My approach to Martial Arts is almost entirely exploratory. I use the movements, the techniques, and the partner work involved, to explore Life, to engage in a study of human interaction, and eventually to learn mutual respect and tolerance as I become more adept at resolving conflicts rather than escalate them.

 

In that sense, for me, the philosophy of Martial Arts is quite simple: the ABC of Martial Arts means “Attacks Become Conversations.

I believe that in this simple statement, lies a fundamental human quality, and also the essence of Martial Arts. In three simple words I can see an entire storyline of human connection.

Every time you will practice with me, this is the motto of my training: Attacks Become Conversations.


Go PRACTICE.
