There are few symbols more important in their significance, more various in application, or more generally diffused throughout the world than the "Triangle".

The triangle serves as the premier symbol within the various different systems of African, Chinese, Indonesian, and Filipino martial arts. Amongst those who practice these and other types of art forms; The triangle is the basis within which all techniques of combat are deeply rooted. All directions for evading or while engaged in defending or attacking are all based upon a thorough understanding of this ancient symbol.

Additionally! much of the spiritual training in the area of Filipino martial arts is likewise based upon the triangle. The famous Filipino 'butterfly knife' is a prime example of a profound understanding of the concept of the triangle by the ancient people of the Batangas region of the Philippines. These human beings well understood the mystical meaning that lies behind this multidimensional symbol.

To the ancient Egyptians, the triangle represented the "Great First Cause" the "Creator" and the container of all things as one, and indivisible, manifesting himself in an infinity of forms, shapes, and attributes in this visible world.

For many that practice Filipino martial arts, this symbol withholds the same significance as it did for the ancient Egyptians. It is this profound understanding of the root cause that elevates Filipino martial arts upon a "Universal" level; A title of honor that can only be applied to those systems capable of knowing the "Essential Truth" within all things.

I believe in geometry it was taught that in Ancient Greece the great mathematician Archimedes used the tools of Euclidean geometry to show that the area inside a circle is equal to that of a right triangle whose base has the length of the circle's circumference and whose height equals the circle's radius in his book Measurement of a Circle. Does an equilateral triangle, placed inside of its corresponding perfect circle, also represent an equilateral pyramid inside of a corresponding perfect sphere? Does an equilateral pyramid even have a corresponding sphere?

An equilateral triangle and a circle have the same center. The
area of that part of the triangle not inside the circle equals the
area of that part of the circle not inside the triangle

I definitely believe in geometry to create lines of attack, and I use the circle to set it up...

Our very bodies are geometrically designed, thats how we can attain power in our strikes thru solid body structure and the use and understanding of geometry. Thank you for your comment.

I was at Borders book store a saw a book titled 'Sacred Geometry', it has to relate to what GM D has posted here. Geometry has a connection to man creation itself ! \m/ Aloha !
