David is correct as far as this statement goes.

Allow me to suggest, however, that continuous improvement in the martial
arts or any other form of physical self-defence might be best deferred in
advance of first achieving the ability to engage in continuous critical
reasoning and the ability to make broad based value judgements that are
wholly concerned with reason, social justice, equity and devoid of
selfishness, passion and unneeded emotion.

With best wishes for the season. May the New
Year bring forth a better way of life for all beings everywhere.
