The very nature of our training in budo is based on the intersection of philosophy and action.

When solidiers in combat detach themselves from the emotional aspects of violence and fighitng and shutdown in order to survive, they deal with a multitude of feelings and issues afterward that they must resolve. Lynn can comment more on this from a psychological standpoint than I.

It is important to train people how to deal with violence spiritually, mentally, as well physically.
IMHO, the map must match the territory. The larger the discrepancy, the larger the problem.

We do not rise to the level of our expectations, but fall to the level of our training. Train well. KWATZ!
