MAAV: Martial Artists Against Violence|
MAAV Mission Statement
As Martial Artists, we understand that violence has always been a part of human history, and we know that unfortunately, there is sometimes a time and place where nothing but force can be used to stop a threat. We practice self-defense skills, and we recognize there are times that violent actions give us our best chance of surviving an encounter with a hostile threat.
As Martial Artists, we believe force and violence should be a last resort. Force is often the first option chosen, rather than the last, by someone who feels they have been wronged, or in some way treated disrespectfully.
We hope to inspire others to join in our philosophies, and practices. We hope to inspire and lead others to seek peaceful solutions to conflict.
We are... Martial Artist Against Violence
