Learning Peace with Padded Weapons
Learning Peace with Sanda
The primary goal of Sanda is to polish one’s ability to apply martial knowledge intelligently to neutralize conflicts with others. The Latin phrase “Si vis pacem, para bellum” says it well: “If you want peace, prepare for war”.
Body conditioning is a core element of the training. When you are both physically and mentally strong, you are less likely to be a target for conflict.
The practice of Sanda drills one to use minimal effort to gain maximum result. Each physical movement is logically studied, analyzed, and executed until the body and mind become one and respond as one.
