• LUA - the spiritual warriors of Hawaii

    All indigenous peoples had a special class of warriors, normally referred to as the "spiritual warriors". They were, not only the protectors of the people, but also the protector of their values. Their warrior and fighting arts existed for the purpose of protecting the women, children, and the village from foreigners or undisciplined men.

    These spiritual warriors are the highest form of male discipline and dedication. Many feared these mysterious warriors, but all knew that their presence means peace and harmony.

    The most respected and highly skilled lua warriors become the leaders and teachers. They are known as the "olohe". Olohe are selected by other olohe, and their mastery in all aspects of Hawaiian warrior arts, culture, healing and spirituality is superb.

    Lua Warrios are the experts in martial arts, but more important, they are Practitioners in physical and spiritual healing. "Don`t break it until you can fix it" is one of their rules.

    In ancient Hawaii, as in most indigenous cultures, men were expected to have both, a warrior presence as well as a peaceful presence (at peace within themselves). A warrior who was at peace within himself was the master at balancing "power and harmony". In spiritual practices, that balance is the most powerful force in the universe. Warriors were considered very attractive by women, and were potential candidates to become chief. They were referred to as "nakoa". Nakoa were the gatherers and protectors of the women, children, and elders.

    Their peaceful presence and charisma brought a sense of well-being and security to all people. At the present time, lua training is available to native Hawaiians only, and is done in secret. Few Hawaiians have the privilege of being invited to learn the art, and only a few last beyond the initial training.
