The Need for a New Philosophy for the Martial Arts

In light of the present situation it is clear that the martial arts are in need of a beacon to illuminate once again the inner path that has been darkened. The question is how to revive the spiritual tradition of the martial arts in today's practice. This can be done only by offering a new philosophy appropriate to the modern world that both integrates and transcends the ancient philosophical roots of the martial arts.

This philosophy must be able to address concrete problems facing today's world in such a way that stimulates the idealism latent in all young people. It must show a clear way to harmonize and unify the values of both East and West, of traditional and contemporary culture, and of the spiritual and material dimensions of life. Far from simply being practitioners who are highly skilled in technique, those who practice martial arts should be people of the highest character who are able to create true families and dedicate themselves to the realization of world peace.
