Good one.. And yes this whole vibrational thing is quite true IMHO, ever since I've been on the spiritual path and i've been attracted or attracting a lot of people who are like minded to me and we have crossed paths in the most places you wouldn't expect

Love,
Ananda

The greatest martial arts masters believe that avoiding or defusing a violent situation is the best solution. The second best is stopping the violence without permanently injuring or killing your opponent. These masters can easily kill you in a second, and choose not to. Nothing wimpy about them at all.
Sometimes the wimpiest people are the ones who are quick to use too much force.

Hi Etherfish;
Martial art is all about defeating the other opponent.If one consciously chooses to be in a challenge.He/she has to expect injury which can be deadly sometimes.
I agree that eastern martial art masters who avoid fights are not being wimpy.
but I don't agree that people who use force to defend themselves if attacked are wimpy either!
we all have different opinions...it's all relative truth

Yes of course challenges are about defeating your opponent. I was talking about real world situations the masters are forced into, they consider it better to stop the attacker without killing him. Of course they use force to accomplish that. And you don't become a master without years of sparring!
