A Martial Artist is...

*Originally posted on the FMK blog on the 15th of October, 2014.

I would like to thank Sifu Freddie Lee for sharing this message on a video on his old YouTube channel. It was on one of your earlier videos where you were displaying powerful unarmed combat techniques on a grappling dummy. It was a very cool video; one of my favourites in fact.

More importantly however, it was this message that really gave a clear definition of what and who a  Martial Artist really is. Whenever people ask me what a Martial Artist is, I simply show them this and most often their confusion disappears.

I think that as people who strive to be true Martial Artists, we should all read this at least once a week so that we always remind ourselves of the path. I also think it is worth memorising, because once this information is engraved in one's memory, I find that it becomes difficult to stray off the path and lose the way.

Remembering this statement makes life so much clearer. It lights up the path of a Martial Artist, and thus many uncertainties disappear. Freddie, by putting content like this out there, you are doing a great service to many people. Please do keep this sort of thing up. Thanks again mate!.
