remember: guns don't kill people, people do.

the weapon itself is not violent, it is the person using it.

The anger and rage the person uses is what takes a weapon, a fist, or a hand and makes it violent.

It is all in the intent of use.

In the dojo we can do atemi and use it in a non-violent, cooperative, learning way....couple it with anger and rage, then it becomes violent.
