Pursuit of Effectiveness

The study of the major disciplines, their methods and purpose of training, philosophies, and historical background have helped to find the commonalities and differences that people search for in their practice. Interdisciplinary research involved students as well as teachers. The integrating of many disciplines to find the Spirit of the Martial Arts was an illuminating process and discovery. Many students who come to practice the 8 Hands Martial Arts are relieved in finding that it doesn’t take a specialized branch to find their way, but an open mind and the ability to look within. Students as well as instructors have found a joy in the effective nature of this style, relinquishing them of the need for defense of their style. No longer does any one Martial Art prove to be better or more effective than any other.
