Real Martial Arts is Not for Children


Real Martial Arts is Not for Children

Real Martial Arts is not for children.  The public has been deceived by mass media.  Martial Arts is real talent, real skill, real responsibility, real discipline.  Real firearms training is not for children but for responsible adults.  Anybody, child or adult can kick and punch, but no child will ever be able to bench press or squat over 250 lbs.  Heavy weight lifting is not possible and unsafe for children but can only be done by a strong and fit adult. 

Driving a motor vehicle you need to be at least 16.  To drink alcohol you need to be at least 21.  To become a Police Officer you need to be at least 21.  To join the military you need to be at least 18.  To own a firearm you need to be at least 21.  To become a responsible father you need to be at least 21.  To become a successful entrepreneur you will need to be at least 21.  To own a home you will need to be at least 21.  To be ready for marriage you will need to be at least 21.  Anything that is important in life requires responsibility; with greater responsibility you will have greater freedom.  Real Martial Arts requires responsibility.  Real Martial Artists are mature and responsible. 


Real Martial Arts is not “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles”, it is not “Power Rangers”, it is not “The Karate Kid.”  Real Martial Arts is Bruce Lee, Tupac, Malcolm X, Martin Luther King Jr., Osho, Socrates, Lao-tzu.  It is power that is guided by wisdom.  It is not just kicking and punching, it is power through Art, it is power through speech, the more modern a Martial Artist, the less kicking and punching, but the way is demonstrated via speech and way of life.

  2. I've never thought about it, but I agree, after integrating weapons into my training I can see that it is not a game, it is a very serious matter. And should be handled by mature people. When you aren't thinking about reality, and just training kicking and punching for competition, that's a game, that's why children do it, but the real thing, the real combat training, they are not mature enough for it.

  3. Also as you said, it's not all about the combat, it's about the art too, and kids cannot understand that, the spirituality, the way of living.
