Shorin-ryu karate and tae kwon do have much in common with each other, and much in common with several other Asian martial arts practices. They all -- karate, tae kwon do, judo, jujitsu and aikido -- emphasize two things. Those two things are that:
It is better to solve problems without fighting, by seeking peace.
A practitioner of martial arts must develop not only his or her body, but mind and spirit as well.
obert Scaglione, one of the foremost masters of shorin-ryu karate in the United States, says that, "Karate was indigenous to the yuKyu culture, pervaded by weapons bans throughout the centuries...." This forced the people of the yuKyu culture, the Okinawans, to develop a system of self-defense using what they had to defend themselves from the invaders, who were mainly the Japanese.

At the age of 19, the Marquis de Lafayette left a life of privilege and prestige in France and sailed to America to fight for the American Revolution. His family motto guided his sense of adventure and reflects an attitude that pervades Lafayette College today: "Cur Non?" ("Why not?). Based on this motto, discuss a "Why not?" moment in your personal, academic, or social life.
Although my life to date has been characterized by a number of such poignant moments, perhaps the most compelling "why not" moment in my life was the decision to actively participate in the martial arts in general and taekwondo in particular when I was younger. Despite my young age and although the sport is dominated by male competitors, I firmly believed I was just as physically and mentally capable as anyone else in the sport and this sense of self-assurance produced a number of…… [Read More]

Korean History: The Climate and Culture of Foreign Business
The challenge of any cultural history undertaken to determine the foreign business fitness of a location is to make sure that there is due respect afforded the society with regard to issues that might not be seen as directly affecting the bottom line. So much of the time in the business world we are collectively focused on the ideas that surround the continued development of the global world economy, without regard for the existence of prior national issues. An easily made mistake for a researcher addressing issues of Korea from the United States would be to distill Korean history into a form that only include the interests of this country after the Korean-American ar.
This account will attempt to address those issues by addressing the culture through its earliest history to its present state through modern demographics, religion, education, housing, leisure…… [Read More]
By understanding the political systems better, I can better understand the role of the policymakers. One day, I aspire to be a policymaker myself. It has been said that a good doctor can save 100 people but a bad policymaker can destroy the lives of thousands. Given that in my country, few study Political Science, I feel that my studies in the subject can help me to be the sort of good policymaker we need.
