Paxtial Philosophies

 

We feel the the message of peace has been spoken for as many years as man has been around. Rather than re-inventing the wheel we thought it best to use the Paxtial Arts movement to house peaceful ideas and philosophies that prior to this had no home.

"What kind of victory is it when someone is left defeated? Nonviolence is not merely a personal virtue. It is also a social virtue to be cultivated like other virtues. You must be the change, You want to see in the world. I object to violence because when it appears to do good, the good is only temporary; the evil it does is permanent. Peace will not come out of a clash of arms but out of justice lived and done by unarmed nations in the face of odds.”― Ghandi

“If you always put limits on everything you do, physical or anything else, it will spread into your work and into your life. There are no limits. There are only plateaus, and you must not stay there, you must go beyond them.”― Bruce Lee

 "My father, Ed Parker Sr., was considered an icon in Martial Arts history. He taught me how to think, he wanted me to know how to problem solve in the mind, and then how to physically try out what you theorize about on the mat. He taught me to always explore, and to always keep my mind open to new ideas and concepts. I asked him why did he feel a need to change from the Martial Art he learned Chinese Kenpo to his development of American Kenpo. He said "it was to adapt the self defense material for today's environment". So what has changed in the past 50 plus years since he said that statement? The laws of the land have changed; what you could do in the 1950’s and 1960’s…..you could never get away with in today’s environment!”― Ed Parker Jr.
