The word budo is derived from the Japanese warrior culture. Often budo is translated in the west as ‘warrior tradition’, ‘warrior ways’ or ‘way of the warrior’. A closer look reveals a deeper meaning one of ‘conflict resolution’ and ‘peace keeper’. Then we find that we are studying the ways of peace keeping and only taking up arms as a last resort, when all other means have failed.
The highest aspects of true martial arts are to strengthen ones character, cultivate your body and perfect your spirit. In the mist of training to these higher aspects, ones ego driven desire for conflict will dissolve. The wanting to participate in conflict and disputes becomes uninteresting and lacks the emotional drive that tends to fuel those situations. In the study of budo we learn how to identify and deal with predatory behavior and strategies to prevent violence and/or harm. When these strategies break down and we have no choice, we are prepared to physically diffuse the situation in the moment with the most effective and efficient violence stopping methods that we train in.
