    They created controlled violence, which is not unruly.

    i mean people want to be violent they go into the martial arts gym with that intent. I don't think a peaceful person would learn martial arts and then become a violent person. if he does then I think something is wrong with his martial arts gym. but maybe there is some factor i'm overlooking idk

    This sounds like something a 10 year old would say or a politician, someone with a hidden agenda.

    Of course not. People who've never done martial arts a day in their life can be extremely violence

    A monk asked Zhaozhou Congshen, a Chinese Zen master (known as Jōshū in Japanese), "Has a dog Buddha-nature or not?" Zhaozhou answered, "無".

    Martial Arts is the study and application of controlled violence for any number of applications ranging from personal development, exercise, spiritual enlightenment, discipline, socializing, social engagement, historic studies, experimental archeology, and hurting people and breaking their toys.

    At a basic level, Martial Arts doesn't "create" violence, but it does recognize that violence is an integral part of the human condition.

    Enter the debate about which of the different martial arts are actually "effective."

    Sort of. In the same way a vaccine contains the virus it's created to inoculate against.

    No.

    Our animalistic natures create violence. Martial arts just teaches us to do it better, but at the same time gives us an outlet to let out our aggression and gives us the discipline to control ourselves.

    Martial Arts, like any other weapon, cannot be blamed for the violence in the human nature.

    It does not create it. But it makes us better at coping with violence that others create.

    Martial arts doesn't create violence. I think what you mean to ask is whether it promotes violence. In that case, it does...when appropriate. MMA matches can be violent, and most people would agree that's an appropriate context for it. Defending yourself from a physical attack (physical violence) often requires the use of violence, and most people would agree that's an appropriate use of violence.

    It is almost certain there are some truly violent people - people who use violence inappropriately - who are trained martial artists. The martial arts didn't make them that way, so far as anyone can tell.
