"There is a time to train and a time to apply. Now is the time to apply everything that you have learned". - Hanshi Platt, Head of Classical Martial Arts Canada
"A warrior chooses pacifism, while others are suppressed by it"
Spirituality first, then manifest the practical. This is a war for the consciousness of humanity, therefore we must act mindfully, decisively and be conscious of our impact on the world around us.
