Yes. Too many people focus on the "when can we beat someone up?" aspect of the arts. Developing a deep spiritual connection with yourself and the universe is far more important.

Developing a deep spiritual connection with yourself and the universe is far more important. For YOU as an individual perhaps but, just because a person wishes to focus on another aspect of the art doesn't make their time effort and commitment any less valid.
