Seeking Enlightenment

Martial Arts

It is one of the great ironies of life that when you seek peace and enlightenment, you may find it in the midst of violence and chaos. This is the paradox of martial arts -- to learn that the human body is both extremely strong and incredibly frail, and that the human heart is both compassionate and murderous.

Many years ago, I sought a martial art for self-defense and spiritual development, and I found it in Ninjutsu. Since first putting on the funny shoes and that first white belt, I've learned a lot about combat, but even more about people and about life.
