Bob's Thoughts Self-defence arts and combative sports - there is a difference

samurai-with-spearOnce-upon-a-time, in our earlier pioneering days - when life was genuinely tough - social groupings of humans were small and scattered fairly scantily over a wide geographic area, particularly in rural or frontier territory. To survive the unpredictable ravages of nature, unexpected attacks by hungry four-legged predators, and surprise ambushes from opposing bands of violent opportunists, humans needed a strong spirit of self-sufficiency, and a health dose of independence and courage, supported by sound physical and mental strength.

Against this background, particularly in the Middle and Far East and especially in China, carefully structured civilian self-defence arts evolved out of the contemporary martial arts of the various warrior groups. These highly effective methods of personal protection became the reserve of the civilian populace who were largely unarmed except for ready access to common handheld home or farm implements, ranging from knives to staves, and even to makeshift spears.
