"To learn martial arts, you need people. Martial arts cannot be learned through watching videos and training solo, you must connect with another person to learn, what we do is actually a study of humanness. So through your training, you will actually come to understand your humanity.
This is an extremely important, especially in this age of the internet, where people can get everything without physical contact with others. As a result, we will actually have many people forgetting their humanity, and thus, the meaning of life itself.”
