No styles, no systems, no rituals, no lineages, no masters, no labels, no belts, no katas, no uniforms, no dogmas;
Only the process of self actualization & personal expression of truth through functional combative movement and fitness.
As the mind navigates the body; by challenging personal self defense dogmas and individual & core belief systems, personal growth and evolution occurs.
On a human level, we learn about the ripple effect and the moral, legal, and ethical consequences of our chosen actions while self examining our darkest emotions. We are encouraged to question everything, to learn to think for ourselves, to be more accountable and research everything we learn and to be open and responsive to life without judgment.
On a personal level, the training can make you face and slay your own demons.

From the Manifesto of Growth, principle number 2 states:
"Forget about just good. Good is a known quantity. Good is what we all agree on. Growth, evolution, is not necessarily rooted in good. Growth is an exploration of unlit recesses that may or may not yield to our research. As long as you only stick to 'good' you will never have real growth."
Bruce Lee prophetically stated in the legendary movie Enter the Dragon, "Don't concentrate on the finger or you will miss all that heavenly glory." He also said, which millions quote, "Absorb what is useful, add what is specifically of your own and disregard the rest." along with " Using no way as way, having no limitations as limitations."
Brilliant words. Brilliant quotes. Brilliant ideology. To live by these words, one would have to greatly reduce the levels of judgement we possess as a species. Judgement tends to lead to subjectivism via pre-conceived notions therefore not allowing one to explore "all the heavenly glory" as judgment fixates one on the proverbial finger regardless of what it may be.
It would require not to be bound by former truths, to literally "empty one's cup" in order to expand our conscious horizons beyond what we presently believe to be set in stone, and perceived of as real... it would require the ability to explore all facets good and bad as no growth happens strictly in the good of things.
The most challenging moments in life, the most painful ones, the one's that permanently scar the soul to its core... these are the moments fighters call "Baptism Under Fire". These are the moments that lead the human being to the crossroads of growth & evolution OR regression & self destruction. These are the defining moments in a human being's life that either make or break em. No two ways about that, growth, evolution occurs when our beliefs are challenged, our core foundations are dissed on, pissed on and beat down and it takes more than rising from up off the ground to define getting back on the saddle as most get back on the exact same saddle they fell off of.
Getting back up is not the tough part nor is it the goal, that is but the subservient beginning.... learning from the hells we endure, put ourselves through and choose based on our core beliefs.... growing from the understanding of what went wrong and evolving into a better human being while moving on fighting the good fight, being accountable for all things in our lives.
Do some shit!
