There is a big difference between a fighter and a martial artist...Which one are you?

Mirko Cro-cop, a true man of war

Weapons are tools of violence;
all decent men detest them

Weapons are tools of fear;
a decent man will avoid them
except in the direst necessity
and, if compelled, will use them
only with the utmost restraint.
Peace is his highest value.
If peace has been shattered,
how can he be content?
His enemies are not demons,
but human beings like himself.
He doesn't wish them personal harm.
Nor does he rejoice in victory
How could he rejoice in victory
and delight in the slaughter of men?

He enters the battle gravely,
with sorrow and with great compassion,
as if he were attending a funeral.

-Lao Tzu, Tao Te Ching
