In short, the Martial Arts Path is the process of turning an ordinary person into a warrior. And as Carlos Castaneda put it, “to become a warrior means to consciously develop a set of specific qualities and behavior corresponding to these qualities”. Mae Oyama said essentially the same thing, but in other words: “the path of martial arts comes down to finding the true meaning of life through military practice.”
The problem of the Path of martial arts is pretty confused by the fact that, discussing it, most often they talk about something else. For example, they begin to talk about the principles of “yin-yang”, about the five primitives and eight trigrams, or they quote Christian Fathers and Teachers of the Church.

Today it’s hard to find someone who has not heard at least once about what Wushu or Kung Fu are. Most people who heard this word immediately recall the famous action movies with nimble and invincible Chinese actors. But it turns out kung fu is not only a great art of combat.

Jiu-Jitsu is one of the most ancient forms of Japanese wrestling. The basic rule of jiu-jitsu is “do not go into direct confrontation to win,” it teaches you to give in to the enemy’s onslaught, not to resist and direct his actions in the right direction until he is trapped and turns his own strength into actions against himself. The principle of this rule arose in connection with the legend of the doctor Sirobei Akayama. Once he noticed that the branches of large trees broke in a storm, and the willow branches yielded to force, but then they rose and survived.
