防身- Self-defense

大家都說,練武可以防身,卻不知道防身其實是一個非常重要的觀念,在練武前,就應該要具備的。什麼是防身呢?保護自身(含周遭所有人等)以避免危害就可稱為防身。People say that martial art can protect our life, however most people don't know self-defense is a very important concept before people learning martial art.
What is "Self-defense"? Self-defense (including other people) is to avoid the damage.

舉凡下雨撐傘、走斑馬線過馬路、走人行道通行等等,都是防身的觀念,不去危險機率大的地方,發生危險的機會也將相對少很多 ,也就是孔子所說"危城不入、亂邦不居"的概念。
For example, using the umbrella in a rainning day, and walking across the street by crosswalk. Do not go to a damger place then we can live safely. Just like Confucius said "do not get into dangerous city, and do not live in a dangerous country".

如果學了武術之後,不停的進出危險場所,沒事好勇鬥狠,早晚要出事的,到時,是要怪罪武術不好還是自己沒學好,其實,是根本的觀念出了問題,武術是在危急時救命用的,不是把救命的本領實際拿去危險的地方實際練習,演習也不會派兵到敵對國家邊境去讓對方有機會開火,一開火,演習就不是演習而是戰爭了。
If people learn martial art and keep stay in dangerous place to try to fight with other people, they would get hurt with no doubt. When they get hurt, they would complain the martial art is not so good for self-defense or they still need more practice. Actually, the root caouse is their main concept of self-defense.

防身也是如此,沒用上時學的是武術,當用上時就可能變成生死搏鬥,平時應該做的是在家或道館多練習,生活中少去那些相對危險的地方,這樣才是真正的防身及養身。
Self-defense is to keep practice martial art to keep our bodies healthy, and when we need to use that to protect our life, we will do our best as what we practice. But, please keep away from the dangerous place to learn the true self-defense.
