Morals, values, ethic, and non-violent philosophy are important part of young warriors education.
"Philosophy is most important in learning Bu-jutsu (martial arts). Just teaching technique is not enough. If someone is only teaching technique he is not a warrior...
We learn about courtesy, respect, responsibility, and caring. Just a few of the many lessons that help develop kids into socially well adjusted and thoughtful, friendly individuals. Curriculum for young students also includes the mental side of self defense; Learning "Verbal-Martial-Art" and Anti-bulling:
to Avoid conflict, Redirect anger, and Manage hostility - (A.R.M.).
Knowing how to defend yourself physically does not preclude trying to avoid having to. The best form of self-defense is one you don't have to apply physically. Kids need to be smart about the situations they put themselves into. Awareness, threat avoidance, and the confidence to say 'NO' when the time comes are key. Children are also educated on the fact that violence is never the answer to difficult social situations. They are taught physical defensive skills, as the primary martial arts portion of Yeshua-Do education, but they also need to understand HOW to attack, so that they can understand how to defend against it. So children do learn some striking, blocking and kicking techniques, so that they can help teach their fellow students to defend against such threats. We are very serious however about teaching the kids that they must never use their martial arts skills, for any reason, outside of the dojo training classes. Social and emotional development is paramount to develop happy and healthy children so we really focus there, then self-esteem and self-discipline become second nature.
Anyone can learn technique and how to fight and defend themselves. But not everyone can be a warrior. That takes an understanding of the whole history and science in warriorship. You have seen the whole forest; the technique is only one tree. To be a true warrior you must see the whole thing."

"Some facets of the moral code are: 1. Loyalty, bravery and trustworthiness. 2. He must be fair minded; exposed to the different ways of thinking and the customs of different types of people 3. He must also be a man of virtue and commitment, willing to defend justice without selflessness and without fear of death. 4. He must not engage in petty arguments or have double standards."
"Being called a ninja is a great honour, like being called a great samurai. One who seeks peace and enlightenment, not violence."
"I always believe in fighting; the question is – do you fight to change things, or do you fight to punish.... An eye for eye will make the whole world blind." - Gandhi
Learning the peaceful-warrior way must be great adventure !
