On Forming Martial Arts Societies

We need martial artists in radical movements. I’m pretty sure everyone can attest to this, for community self defense and for the need to discipline radicals on a social as well as individual level. It is a shame so many radicals as well as many anarchists don’t know the basics of body structure or self defense. So this piece is aimed at a proposal.

Proposal: The creation of a Warrior Program/Collective aimed at training and providing radicals with the needed self defense, skills, and training to be well rounded activists. The program/groups could function as a higher level of affinity groups, built on trust through training and working at building a cohesive set of skills that actually benefit radical communities beyond mere theory and abstract philosophy.

It would be nice to have a corps of individuals similar to the international brigades who are trained in permaculture, self defense, health and rewilding skills. Lets build a dialog of the formation of such a group

We need to be warriors of philosophy and action. Not just thugs who emotionally and aggressively antagonize communities because they don’t agree with us. If you are interested in this idea. Please email your thoughts at: autonomousearthdesigns (at) gmail.com
