Three important tenets that I learned while studying Shorinji Kempo were; do not maim, do not break bones, and do not kill. I could understand the killing portion of those rules, but I personally always felt that the effective practice of martial arts was about making peace through the destruction of your enemy. I was taught that it is not about violence, but knowing full combat actually puts you in the state of mind to walk away from a fight unless you have no other choice.
Wow, I never thought I would hear that name anytime soon and behold browsing through the webs I see a Hiei pre-order in the works to be released soon. Now the first time I saw Yuu Yuu Hakusho was on Toonami back in the day and I thought it was a badass anime. Now you can bring Hiei home.
When the world is turns its back on and you still gather the strength to hold on to your morals in defending the innocent makes you a person with great honor. That will to stand for your beliefs is rare because some will just cave into their desire for vengeance and hatred. Shishio is a warrior betrayed by his own government for doing what they hired him to do and now he is bringing his own hell to the masses until his justice is quenched. This is the last movie in the trilogy where Kenshin Himura is being pushed to break his vow of peaceful life and we are left with one question. Will he maintain his promise never to kill?
Welcome all to this W.T.F Wednesday movie review on Tekken 2: Kazuya’s Revenge. It is funny how someone has revenge in a story that is before the first tekken movie. That is right this is a prequel with a sequel title. So, it starts off already confusing, but it gets even worse. However I have done a video to point out some key factors that most of you already knew about.
“Only a warrior chooses pacifism; others are condemned to it.”
There are times I question the actions I take in seeking a peaceful existence. It is something I have always wanted, but it is a path that comes with much discipline and strength. The trick is keeping a true peaceful self while walking in a field of discomfort and violence. We have here a story of Kenshin Himura who was once a man walking a path being followed by a trail of blood until the day war was over and he laid down his blood thirst to become a peaceful wanderer. He found friends and to one would assume love in this new era he was truly fighting for, but as always there are those that can’t accept this peaceful life. The blood thirst is just too strong to ignore and as always the ones holding the power are not strong enough to deal with the devil they once worshiped. The manslayer’s legacy will always be disturbed until the land can be quenched, but at what cost?
