The brawl that broke out after the main event at UFC 229 was a disgraceful display of revenge and lack of discipline. This is something that I feel obligated to discuss, being an advocate for true martial arts.
To me, martial arts is all about self-control.
No, I am not taking sides nor do I feel any need to. Did I see Conor throw the first punch? Yep. Do I remember him attacking the bus? Of course. Did he slander the Nermagomedov family name? He did. But does that justify Khabib’s actions? You mean is revenge a good motive? No, in fact I think the best way of defending your family’s honor is by settling it mano a mano, legally, in a cage in front of millions of people. He settled it at 3:03 of round 4. “But his emotions got the best of him,” supports will say. That’s exactly my point.
Martial arts is about self-control.
I intend to develop myself in a positive manner and to avoid anything that would reduce my mental growth or physical health.
I intend to develop self-discipline to bring out the best in myself and others.
I intend to use what I learn in class constructively and defensively to help myself and my fellow man, and to never be abusive or offensive.
