Re: Rei and Controlled Violence

Agreed. Seems obvious. Even in the most rough & tumble muay thai gyms there is etiquette, though it's unrecognizable when compared to a formal Japanese art dojo.

Training together, learning together, how to hurt/harm/maim/kill one another simply breeds mutual respect, which leads to such etiquette organically.

Just my $0.02.

I find it interesting that the kanji character for kuzushi illustrates a mountain falling on a house.
