Desk of the Rising Dragon
“Blessed are the peacemakers,” Jesus said. That is one of the main goals, ironically as it may appear, of martial arts. Certainly it follows our mission statement of being a ‘Warrior with Compassion.’ It fits in with our White Lotus code to “seek peace and help all in need.” It may seem strange that peace can come from the marital or ‘fighting’ arts. But to defend ones family and other is being a peace maker for them. And often martial arts teaches to do less than what the opponent is trying to do to you. If they are trying to kill you, cripple them. If they are trying to cripple you, subdue them. If they are trying to subdue you, wound them. If they try to wound you, counter them without injury. If they try to insult you, turn the other cheek. Rising Dragon students hope and seek to have compassion in these ways that offer the opponent a chance to consider the mercy and turn from the grievous efforts and find peace.
