Athens, Greece has been continuously inhabited since about 5000 BC/BCE.

Japanese written history extends back 6000 years BC/BCE.

This means that, as a species we have been recording our thoughts for somewhere between 7000 and 8000 years. Training techniques are developed, lost, rediscovered or redeveloped over and over again. Here are some quotes that show how the discipline of martial arts can apply to modern weapons. (And some that are just really cool)

Miyamoto Musashi

It will seem difficult at first, but everything is difficult at first.

The way of the warrior is to master the virtue of his weapons.

It is necessary to treat training as part of normal life.

If you know the way broadly you will see it in everything.

Hunter B. Armstrong

One mind, any weapon.


Excellence is an art won by training and habituation. We do not act rightly because we have virtue or excellence, but we rather have those because we have acted rightly. We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, then, is not an act but a habit.

Tsukahara Bokuden

Mental bearing (calmness), not skill, is the sign of a matured samurai. A Samurai therefore should neither be pompous nor arrogant.


Out of every one hundred men, ten shouldn't even be there, eighty are just targets, nine are the real fighters, and we are lucky to have them, for they make the battle. Ah, but the one, one is a warrior, and he will bring the others back.

Bruce Lee

Before I learned the art, a punch was just a punch, and a kick, just a kick. After I learned the art, a punch was no longer a punch, a kick, no longer a kick. Now that I understand the art, a punch is just a punch and a kick is just a kick.

I fear not the man who has practiced 10,000 kicks once, but I fear the man who has practiced one kick 10,000 times.
