Lessons on Terminology and History

with Dan Bernardo, Sabom

The Chinese character for Moo "武" (as in, Moo Duk Kwan) is made up of two characters; "止" which means "to stop", and "戈" which means "lance, or big axe". Traditionally, this character "武" does not mean military, war-like, or killing... but the complete opposite; stopping war, protection, etc...

It is our duty as Martial Artists to train ourselves to stop conflict, not partake in it.
