martial arts come from oppressed people who were prohibited from using weapons and possessing tools (by political, military or religious decree), to prevent rebellion/assassination attempts against the king-emperor-high priest oppressor. Forced to use their minds and find new ways to protect themselves, the people created and mastered the art of fighting without conventional weapons by using their complete bodymind. See also Bruce Lee's Jeet Kune Do.
Hmmm...i never thought of things this way lol. It has a nice logic to it though. We think that because we don;t need to put much effort into things we thought were difficult, it's easier. But we never stop to think that actually, it's not easy, you've just gotten better and stronger at it :) Love this attitude!
