    I think the way of martial arts starts understanding fighting.Every beginner goes true the inner struggle that we fought with ourselves.That's more bloody and ugly than anything.A real life and death match with ourselves. If we win than we can start learning the true art and mentally and spiritually develop. Weapon is only just a tool to archive that. Make a 1000 cuts with a katana or stick or whatever.

You can not learn to defend yourself from a knife attack without learning to handle a knife yourself. This study does not condone violence against others but encourages understanding and self protection.

    viewpoint of RMAX on violence in general and knife violence in specific. Can you please comment on that?

    Im asking because I associate buddhism -among aother things- with maintaining an ethical stance towards violence, not by denying it's existence -I'm a martial artist myself-

    The combination of both a knife ánd boeddhist (?) religious symbols makes me wonder -and a little worried I guess- about the ethical point of view of RMAX towards violence in general, and knife violence in specific. Can you say something about this?

    I'm wondering because I personally associate buddhism with an effort to take an ethical stance against certain types of violence. Not by (continued in next part…)
