Who are they?

In this life there is but two types of people, Givers and takers. 
As I age and become more aware of not only others but myself, I see a dual side to peoples actions. Before I continue, I will remind you all that I myself have made some hiccups and that we all are capable of good or bad. My advice is to attain an open mind, not a gullible one.  Have a universal view. Here I will list two sides to people, the bottom line is that some do not even see themselves.


These characters are the bowel of Azimuth. They lack any real imagination, depth or sensitivity. They often break hearts or dreams, their conversations are one coloured. They often react to what is with what they have then move on, unaware of the effects it may do to a more thoughtful person. They are smug and witty. They may also talk too much about themselves, and shout when they whisper. They could have world skills but lack any real information about their own mind and bodies. Many have more wealth then stealth.


These people will be kind, thoughtful and calm. They may trust to easy and fall hard. Regardless they will be real and fun. They listen,  and see. They are aware of them selves even their bad traits unlike the FS above. They could take longer to forgive or they may forgive easier. They will be wise and warm, fair and friendly. At times may seem cold but mostly in thought. They can communicate all ways, all situations..unlike the FS above who just see how it effects them.

Some people may be a mixture of both and nobody is perfect. Which one are you? Who are you?

Art of Warfare?

MARTIAL ART. Warfare Art...

Does this mean only FIGHTING? What is fighting? It is a violent struggle of destruction, to either win or enforce a feeling. When we watch sport martial arts we see the art in a controlled arena, sometimes the blood sport element of Boxing, Kick/Thai boxing and UFC seems to divert the essence of art away from the ART. Here is the paradox. I believe although it is fighting it is still the ART of movement, but I also believe the ART is lost also in the same moment. I feel KATA/FORM competition is more personal in ways as its you against you. True SELF DEFENCE is protecting oneself from the self also. KUMITE, LIGHT CONTACT is a safer way of displaying MARTIAL ART than FULL CONTACT. For some FIGHTERS it is their jobs and they are great at what they do and they have my RESPECT. The arts go deeper for me I'm afraid, but we need exposure to what its like to be hit for real, so the shock of an attack does not bewilder us. The good thing about Martial Arts is that it caters for all who desire different things. What I think or feel may or may not be true for the person reading this post now. Some will disagree or agree...YIN & YANG.

I respect what we have now, but just as we all have our own Martial paths...I choose Martial Arts to preserve me and not injure myself through trading war shots with another be it for money or glory. I just love training, it is fun, stress relieving and it works. I have competed in Kickboxing and although I enjoyed winning and receiving a gold trophy, I still had an emptiness within. 

Wherever your place in this great discipline...enjoy it!
