Fear In Martial Arts

While the various things associated with Martial Arts differ widely, the reasons behind taking them up are always the same. It is always to do with fear. Whether we choose to admit it or not the desire to learn to look after ourselves only comes about because, deep down, we feel vulnerable and threatened. Because fear is behind people taking up a Martial Art, combating and overcoming that fear of violence both within in ourselves and in other people is the true aim and purpose of a traditional Martial Art.
