The author of this article is trying to prove that today (as in ancient times) exist people, who commit themselves to self-improvement based on the so-called Warrior’s Way. They have much in common with ancient warriors form the Far East. Moreover, it is the culture of honor that determines the value of different nations and all humanity. Despite the fact, that oriental warfare systems are invariably associated with the concept of physical culture, it is their sense of nobleness that determines their special and unique identity. Today you can find many followers of continuation of their own self-improvement process based on the challenges associated with the achievement of psychophysical perfectionism, which is an integral factor in any martial art. The Warrior’s Knight Way carries lots of character of the martial arts schools, which even today meet the needs of safety and self-realization of a person. Decisive influence here have religious systems of India, Tibet, China, Korea and Japan. The author of this article believes, that the decisive factor of personal development (in the Far East Martial Art) is the Buddhist philosophical-religious system and psychology associated with it. In the background appears here neoconfucianism as a combination of Buddhism and Confucian philosophy of the social organism. Not without a meaning are ideas from Hindu (India), Taoism (China) and Sith religion (Japan). Inherent in the Far East martial arts are the traditional transmission and ritual.
