Re: religious terminology in martial arts and implication


This is a spanish "Stop, bullet!"

This kind of amulets have been used by spanish soldiers since 17th century. Miraculous survival from combat wounds suffered have been attributed to them.

Of course there are not regarded as mere talismans, but real connections to the divine.
