Well, I'm new to buddhism so on the actual concepts and practices I wouldent know how to amswer, so I believe this dialouge will also help me grow as one. But I do know martial arts and self defence, I hold a couple of black belts in Tae kwon do, hapkido and kum-do and It is my hard based belief that even the ones who walk the path of buddhism should atleast know how to defend themselves. Also just practicing it wont harm you or others if done correctly, examples are shadow boxing, forms, technique and even sparring (if done responsibly) should not hurt anyone at all. But I would lo e some more insight on the actual combat self defence area of the disccution. Hope This helps
