Judo and Life : Non Violence is Not Necessarily Pacifism
Stand Tall: Respect and Affect
Mob. 0408 541 015


I am struck at times by the difference culture makes to our understanding of violence.

For example, once when I was reading my Bible and I came across this passage:
David {who was to become the king of Israel} went out to them and said to them: “If you have come to me in peace to help me, I am ready for you to join me. But if you have come to betray me to my enemies when my hands are free from violence, may the God of our ancestors see it and judge you.”(1 Chronicles 12:17)
"Wait a minute I thought, wasn't David a man of violence?"
Yet here he is declaring "my hands are free from violence".
So how does that work?

David was a soldier and killed many people:
  • He Killed Goliath (1 Samuel 17:50)
  • He killed three hundred and sixty Benjamites (2 Samuel 2:31)
  • He went out and killed two hundred Philistines (1 Samuel 18:27)
  • David gave an order to his men, to killed and was sometimes brutal to his enemies (2 Samuel 4:12)
I quick look at the Baker Theological Dictionary of the Bible shows, under the term "Violence" a Biblical perspective of the subject is one of verbal abuse and physically acting murderously.

I found it interesting that this concept can be found in other ancient literature.

“a skillful soldier is not violent, an able fighter does not rage, a mighty conqueror does not give battle, a great commander is a humble man”

― Lao Tzu, Tao Te Ching

A different translation

A good soldier is not violent. A good fighter is not angry. A good winner is not vengeful A good employer is humble. This is known as the Virtue of not striving. This is known as ability to deal with people. This since ancient times has been known as the ultimate unity with heaven.

Translation – Gia-fu Feng and Jane English

Isn't it interesting how different a single concept can be understood in different cultures. By that I mean that those who promote the modern day concept of Non Violence are clearly of a different culture to those that have been quoted above.

Even in modern times there are different understandings within our own culture.

I've always loved this quite from the TV series of Kung Fu:
(forgive me I can never remember the name of the master that said it so I have called him Master Pu).

{Master Pu(?)}: Peace lies not in the world but in the man that walks the path.

{Kaine}: But in my path may be men not filled with peace.

{Master Pu(?)}: Then seek a different path.
At each turn appear those who would be violent and do not love peace.
To reach perfection a man must develop equally compassion and wisdom.

{Kaine}: How do I not contend with a man that would contend with me?

{Master Pu(?)}: In a heart that is one with nature though the body contends there is no violence and in the body that is not one with nature though the body be at rest there is always violence. Be therefore like the bow of a boat, that cleaves the water, yet it leave in its wake water that is unbroken.

Kung Fu (the Tv series) Wisdom

Something to think about!
Enjoy

Official EJU Newsfeed : BEGLARASHVILI DELIVERS GEORGIA’S FIRST GOLDEN MEMORIES


The second day for the European Youth Olympic Festival [EYOF] brought actions from three of the following weight divisions; -48kg, -60kg and -66kg. By the end of the day it was Italy, Georgia and France to share the gold medals. 


In the -48kg category, the expected re-match between Marusa STANGAR (SLO) and Nadezda PETROVIC (SRB) has been postponed as both players had to settle for the repechage after loosing out in the quarter-finals. Petrovic finished third place whilst Stangar had to pull out due to an injury. The final triumph of the category was claimed by Coraline MARCUS TABELLION (FRA). 


Double bronze collection from yesterday has been topped up with an additional two bronzes and a golden performance for the Georgian team. The crowd was exceptionally supportive throughout the day and encouraged their athletes to push through ages, even at times when it was difficult. As a results of that, both, Natalia KIPSHIDZE (GEO -48kg) and Bagrati NINIASHVILI (GEO -66kg) collected bronze medals. 


By the end of the final block, it was clear who will be titled as the player of the day. With his outstanding judo skills shown throughout the day it was certain to have Robinzon BEGLARASHVILI (GEO) as the highlight of day two. Kapsi born judoka started off the day with two waza-ari score against Tigran BADALYAN (ARM). In both occasions, he through his opponent with left sided osoto-gari. Following that, it was Ismayil IBRAHIMOV (AZE) to face the Georgian ace. Beglarashvili won his contests by a breath-taking ure-nage. Next up was Lars KAMPHUIS (NED) to defeat and with the winner securing a spot in the final it was time to shine again with a left sided osoto-gari.


The winner of the 2015 Cadet Europeans, Manuel LOMBARDO (ITA) was waiting for Beglarashvili in the final of the -60kg category. The contest started of rather cautiosly. It was around half-time when an uchi-mata was initiated by the Gerogian youngster which Lombardo blocked. Not for a slight second Beglarashvili would have turned back and he finished his move with a left sided maki-komi to score for waza-ari. This single movement was enough to secure Gerogia's first gold medal of the tournament. "Today my performance was pretty good, especially that I faced the Cadet European Champion of Sofia [2015] in the final and for me it was very special to defeat him. I was very happy. Finishing third place in Sofia boosted me to wanting to win here... I was really happy to have my family and friends here today and their support was an additional inspired me and it was a real pleasure to be able to win front of them", expressed his emtions the 17 years old judoka. 


"The highlight of the day was for me when the buzz went off in the final and I looked at the crowd and I saw that every and each of them were up on their feet celebrating my victory. It was very emotional", he added. Not soon before the Georgian judoka will be in action again as he will begin his preparation for the Cadet World Championships, which will take place in Sarajevo, Bosnia-Herzegovina. Beglarashvili: "I hope God will bless me and I will win gold again."


The tournament will begin at 11:00 tomorrow (local time) with another three weight categories on board, -52kg, -57kg, -73kg. Follow all the actions on our EJU LIVE STREAM.
