Major Martial Arts & Life Principle

Balance is Primary. This is one of the most critical principles in martial arts and life. When things are out of balance—physically, mentally, emotionally, financially, spiritually—complications ensue. We simply cannot have a substantive, healthy, harmonious life if we are out of balance.

As Euripides (480 to 406 BCE) stated …

The best and safest thing is to keep a balance in your life.

Pope John Paul II observed …

Man always travels along precipices. His truest obligation is to keep his balance.
