In my videos, I'm always telling you that karate is the opposite of violence.
More specifically, it is anti-violence because it serves to defend itself.
Do not be deceived. You do karate to forge your body and learn how to defend yourself.
You make a weapon by transforming your body. She can become formidable.
By nature, as a karateka, you must not be violent in your heart. Your karate should only serve to defend you if you are assaulted.
Sometimes this defense will also result in an attack. If there is no choice, if the person in front of you wants to fight, you attack. You do not let yourself go.
It may seem paradoxical, and sometimes people do not understand that karate is both defense and attack.
But be careful because it's a weapon you have in your hands. Besides, if you study self-defense a little bit, you will see thatyou must be very careful when using your karate in case of aggression.
Be careful because for the judges, you will be considered someone with a weapon.
To remain in self-defense when someone assaults you, you must defend yourself with a weapon equivalent to his own.
If the person in front of you is just a little aggression of nothing at all and if you know that you can control it without having to hit him, avoid doing it!
Above all, do not type it and therefore, pay attention to the force you use.
With karate, you have a formidable weapon, so it is a disadvantage and an advantage. It's up to you to decide how much power you can give to your weapon.
You can give him a lot if you have guts and you can give him a lot of efficiency.
Just control the situation and if someone attacks you, you control it and that's it.
Again, your karate is still a weapon that can be formidable.
Do not have fun using the "big artillery" when someone is looking for you a little mess in the street. You can hurt, you can kill. Be very careful.
At home, you have knives in your kitchen. These are weapons.
It would not occur to you to plant them in someone's belly.
Do the same with your karate, so use it only when you need it most. When there is no choice. When all negotiation is impossible and that, really, your life is in danger. There, it serves to defend you.
Karate, with the techniques you learn, is a real weapon, but it must be used for non-violence.
Everything you do in your classes follows the program of the school of peace that is karate.
You learn so much to defend yourself that you come to breathe peace because you control yourself more and more. As you train, you will feel better inside yourself, especially if you add meditation, concentration and mental visualization.
You will elevate your mind a little to calm yourself inside.
This school of peace will also appease you vis-à-vis others.
Owning a weapon in itself implies having a great responsibility too and not to hit anywhere. Use it to control the situation if you are attacked.
By practicing karate, you are forging your body to become a weapon. Otherwise, it's useless to do it. You must have the warrior's state of mind. When you make a Zuki, even in the void, you do it with the idea of hitting without pretending.
But, what's good with your karate practice is that you are still learning to control yourself. The day when, really, you need it, do you mainly use your control, your self control and your fair play. Respect your opponent, even if he attacks you.
Do not underestimate it because it can be very dangerous. Think of the phrase "hold an opponent in check".
Finally, always be careful. As soon as you work with weapons, even if it's your hands and feet, it's still very dangerous.
