How About You?
Madness abounds, basketball, road rage, civil disobedience, terrorism. This world seems to thrive on madness. I’m sure you have already come up with some more. So what are you mad about? It all comes back to the individual doesn’t it?
A martial artist always looks to himself or herself first, then to the next layer outward - family, neighborhood, workplace and so on. The farther we go out it may seem we have less effect on our environment. Yet combining individuals of like mind develops enough force to change things. We simply can’t stay complacent in our own little environments and expect things in the world to be okay. This is madness.
Martial artist are intentional people. We develop ourselves so we have something to contribute to our world near and far away. Let’s not waste ourselves in selfish pursuits. Let’s make a sound contribution to the future.

There are always a few
who stand up in times
of communal madness
and have the courage
to say that what unites us
is greater than what divides us.
