We pretty it up and get into some deep denial, but martial arts is about hurting people. Breaking them. We can tack on a philosophy or pretend that we are kicking people in the head to access some inner peaceful monk, but that's a shitload of rationalization and mental gymnastics.
Then for safety reasons and social reasons and most insidious of all to protect the illusions of rank and mastery and proficiency, everyone practices NOT hurting each other. Some practice so well that after years of training in a martial art, they are better at not hurting people than they are hurting them. - http://chirontraining.blogspot.com/2009/06/hurt-me.html
