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.
In this, martialists learn to both respect the danger of violent conflict, and to face it without fear.
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.
This is the second of a series of mutual cross-training sessions first started by Aikido of Columbus along with the Central Ohio Asian Festival.
Instructors from area schools should arrive with around 5 selected students.
Each instructor will discuss the topic and lead a hands-on training exercise, in a spirit of curiousity and mutual respect.
