Below a quote from Grand Master HEE IL CHO. (Master Solomon studied
with the grand master 1977-1980.
“All this has created a great conflict within me, for if I cannot use my
skill to protect myself from any person who walks in off the street and
demands a fight, how can I hope my students will retain confidence
in my ability to teach them this skill? And yet, if I use my skill and
hurt someone, even in self-defense, have I not betrayed the spirit
of what martial arts is all about?”
