Respect each other, respect others and their martial art, respect your art, most of all respect the forum.


Weapons are the tools of fear;
all decent men will avoid them
accept in the direst necessity
and, if compelled, will use them
only with the utmost restraint.
Peace is his highest value.
If the peace is shattered,
how can he content?
His enemies are not demons,
but human beings like himself.
He doesn't wish them personal harm.
Nor does he rejoice in victory.
How could he rejoice in victory
and delight in the slaughter of men?

He enters battle gravely,
with sorrow and with great compassion,
as if he were attending a funeral.

- Lao Tzu, The Tao Te Ching. Verse 31
