self-defense is to protect yourself without injuring your attacker."  J. Mitose

Karate's Missing Peace; Peace Map
Peace Map is a "check list" of 6 essential questions that lead to successful Safe-Defense problem solving.  These scripted questions are respectful, relevant and lead to sustainable solutions.  They're organized within 3 features; Conditions, Positions and Remedy.  These features are the key to Peace Map because they orient and guide all questions. Peace Map shows where in the problem solving process you are at any given time and what's left to do before advancing.

Peace Map is the
foundation for Peace Talk's questions. It guides 2-party and 3-party mediation. Peace Map is not a formal mediation but, with just a few add-ons, is like a short-cut. That is, formal mediation must adhere to Peace Map ecology but often includes other things; confidentiality, disputant-to-disputant dialog, rephrasing, future pacing, agreement contracts, handshakes, signatures, etc.

*Peace Map is to mediation what clear directions are to a road map.  For example, "head North for 6 blocks then turn left for 1 mile" is very different then "go this way for a while then turn left".  A map shows what to do and what comes next depending on the desired destination.
