Although Revat has its roots from other Martial Arts, it is unique in its way that it utilizes strong philosophies within its practice. Revat philosophy plays a huge part in this style, with the general precept being that is not just how you move your body, but also how you move your mind.  

It is commonly seen that an attacker and defender are in two different positions, but the Revat philosophy reminds you that neither of these positions can exist without the other and it is this relationship that must be understood, accepted and be harmonized. 

One of the primary philosophies of Revat is that one should learn how to achieve victory over oneself, not over others. This differs a lot from conventional martial art ideology where victory over others is usually sought. Revat's philosophy says that victory over others can only be short lived and eventually results in fear, resentment and sometimes even retaliation. It is important to understand for anyone studying this Martial Art that Revat promotes peace by prevention of violent conflict. 

The basis of Revat philosophy is built upon harmonizing the body and mind in a peaceful, efficient and fluent way. Students should eventually learn that they can become one with everything around them, and should not retaliate to attacks, but rather accept them and move with them. This can be seen in many of the Revat techniques, even the most basic ones.
