Can 100 martial arts teachers join forces and bring positive change to their communities, to the international martial arts community, and maybe even to the world?
Meet the members of The One Hundred; each has made a solemn commitment to an extraordinary code of conduct, an engaged practice of the martial arts on and off of the mat, and an extensive course of community involvement/service.
Members follow a strict and healthy diet, are tasked to plan, execute, and record 1000 community-based projects, to teach peace education, to engage in environmental self-defense, and to live their practice as an example to their students, members of their communities, and to all people who expect authenticity and self-discipline from teachers who have committed their life to the practice of the martial arts.
