Disciple Caine: ‘Master Tae, What is the best way to deal with force?’
-Master Tae: ‘As we prize peace and quiet above victory, there is a simple and preferred method…. Run away.’
Kan: Do not meet a wave head on. Avoid it. You do not have to stop force. It is easier to redirect it. Learn more ways to preserve, than to destroy. Avoid, rather than check. Check, rather than hurt. Hurt, rather than maim. Maim, rather than kill. For all life is precious. Nor can any be replaced.
