Martial artists celebrate UN Peace Day
On September 16, central Ohio martial artists will gather to share how their art connects to peacemaking.
Online PR News – 10-September-2012 – Columbus,OH – On September 16, central Ohio martial artists will gather to share how their art connects to peacemaking.
The 16th is a most appropriate day for this: it starts the week of the United Nations International Day of Peace ( http://www.un.org/en/events/peaceday/ ).
But why would martial artists take such an interest?
Training in martial arts means learning about fighting in a disciplined and relatively safe manner.
Such people are uniquely prepared to choose peace if the chance arises.
Extending the ideas of one art - Aikido's "Aiki peace week" ( http://aikipeaceweek.org/ ) - schools of several different arts will explore this fascinating topic the afternoon of the 16th.
Instructors from area schools should arrive with around 5 selected students.
