You guys all know what "Seon" (선) comes from?

Talk about martial arts identity, not to mention the Korean ideal of "good".

Many things make the FMA arts different, but this is a major aspect.

Beginning students start with hand held weapons and graduate to open hands, although open hands are an integral part of defending and attacking with a weopon. We presuppose that a weopon will be used in a combative confrontation. Sticks and blades move faster and change directions than hands. We become accustomed at defending and attacking at that type of speed. Specializing in close quarter combat.
