I was talking with a retired cop who is beginning to train in Taekwondo and he was talking about the philosophy and his personal philosophy of the martial art. From what I can gather the art of Taekwondo has a philosophy that stems from Korean religious beliefs but ultimately it says "the philosophy of Tae Kwon Do seeks to bring students to a level of consciousness known as “Present Time.” This occurs when one is completely in tune with oneself and nature to the degree that ones actions and reactions are always perfectly coordinated with the forces in life whether that be in the sparring ring, in a social setting or even when alone. Such a person cannot be made upset by anything it encounters in life. True masters of Tae Kwon Do are noted for their serene personalities, which stem from their living in Present Time." Is there a overall philosophy for Krav Maga like this? What do you all say is your martial arts philosophy?
