  1. Adam says, Seriously, I am not Mr. Karate.

    Some training might only be in physical techniques in some schools but the environment in the training hall teaches attitudes that decrease aggression.

    The boxing gym I went to had no lectures about philosophy, just the head coach and the rest of the coaches displayed through their attitudes and demeanor how others in the training hall should act (friendly, aggressive only in sparring, and looking out for each other). I never seen any bullies or hotshots in the gym (which is hidden away in a residential area that is not that great of a neighborhood).

    I have yet to go to a gym that is a “Cobra Kai” like in The Karate Kid (I never experienced one- honest).

    I wonder if such studies have been done on the Takushoku and other “traditional” schools that are aggressive and abuse their trainees.
