Re: An open letter to the martial arts community about conduct in the dojo


If you see something happening and you don't speak up, yes, the illusion of community may survive for a time. But what is truly the right thing to do?
For some reason, this is more common in bullying/abusive relationships than I would like to admit. We see danger, understand that it may translate to us either directly or indirectly, yet still conclude ignoring the situation is appropriate.
