THE PHILOSOPHY BEHIND MARTIAL ART & THE BUDDHIST EIGHTFOLD PATH

True Martial arts is a way of life and a lifelong journey of self-development and discovery. Taekwon is the physical aspect and kicking and punching. “Do” is the spiritual way of life every martial artist should strive to study and improve. Only by combining the two elements together can you enjoy physical, mental and spiritual improvement. If you don't practise Do, the whole process is meaningless. Studying “Do” without doubt is the most important element of the martial arts. In the Western world “Do” is impossible to translate but central in Asian culture. In basic terms Do is the natural way and harmonious energy of all living things. Eg Day turns to night, seasons change, life and death.
