Amusing response Paul!

Although I think many people who undertake martial arts are inherently aggressive, I think it is a useful conduit for this aggression. Although martial arts may be 'violent' (i.e. very physical with lots of contact and posibly injury) I think many martial artists are actually not violent, and that indeed, it could be the reason for this.
