Martial Arts for Peace Institute

Be a Peaceful Victor
Not a Victim of Violence


The Martial Arts for Peace resources online are offered at no cost
due to generous donations that produced them.

The current publicized image of the Martial Arts as a violent military discipline is not a true representation of what is a means through which one can come to understand and creatively deal with conflict. The Martial Arts can give the student the opportunity to understand oneself. In understanding oneself the student comes in direct contact with the origin of conflict, the foundation of violence. This coming into contact with oneself is the primary reason why serious people study the Martial Arts. The intelligent practice of the Martial Arts is also an ethical approach to conflict resolution in that it can be an effective way to dispel harmful aggression by developing the confidence to neutralize hostility by non-belligerent, alternative means.
