Three Rules for Self Defense: Rule Fifteen

No one engaged in warfare entangles himself with the affairs of this life, that he may please him who enlisted him as a soldier. And also if anyone competes in athletics, he is not crowned unless he competes according to the rules.” 2 Timothy 2:4-5

We are currently sharing with you several “Rules of Three” that are part of training in Grace Martial Arts.

You can look at previous Rules here:

Three Steps

“All the joints of the body move together. We should take notice of these three steps:

1. Boxing requires movement, but first the internal requires stillness.

2. To defeat the enemy requires strength, but first the internal requires softness.

3. Fighting requires speed, but first the internal requires slowness.

These steps: stillness, softness and slowness are all the joints of the body moving together.” The Chinese Five Word Song, Verse 92
