Self defense in Asian religions

That's the topic of my [David B Kopel] latest article, to be published this fall in the Journal on Firearms & Public Policy. The article looks at Confucianism (in detail), Taoism (in detail), Hinduism (briefly, with some discussion of Gandhi), Jainism (very briefly), Sikhism (also very brief), and Buddhism (at great length). The article also examines the spiritual aspects of the martial arts. For all the religions, the article looks at the scriptures and the historical practice of the religion.[...]
The article is linked here. Just click and follow the to the PDF and comment section. It's quite long at 63 pages.

Have a look at the paper and the comments section. It's an interesting read.

Any comments from you folks?

The people who understand, understand prefectly. York Shodokan Aikido
