The Aristotelian Philosophy of the Martial Arts

By Charles H. Hackney, Ph.D.




The Aristotelian Philosophy of the Martial Arts

The author introduces the concept of a eudaimonic practice, an activity in which pursuing excellence in the practice results in the practitioner also becoming a better person. The martial arts can best be described as such a practice. Utilizing this approach also reconciles a broad range of divergent perspectives on the martial arts.
