Peace & Discipline Two of my students have temper control issues. Their ability to control their temper, and express their anger in an appropriate manner has improved dramatically since they began training. When I asked them how their training helped them achieve this, they told me that it was a combination of meditation, and the knowledge that they would no longer be able to train if they hurt someone. I strive to teach them that the art is perfecting one's mind, body, and spirit. The martial aspect is ever present, but used with the utmost restraint, and only in the most dire of circumstances. I haven't had to yet, but I will dismiss a student if they cannot control themselves.
