Conflicts are inevitable in our dualistic world. Tamas (inertia), Rajas (dualistic movement), and Satwa (rythm), are the three gunas or characteristics of the dense universe.
Yet a warrior of the wisdom does not go around beating the first child who happens to challenge him to a "duel".
If he did this, he would cease to be a warrior -- nay, such a fact might even reveal that he was never a warrior of the wisdom, in the first place.
A warrior of the wisdom is a warrior because he has a lofty goal and avoids loosing energy with unworthy or short term, personal goals.
He knows his mind is a dangerous sword -- according to the Zen and Samurai traditions --; and he normally keeps it in that modest scabbard whose substance is made of silence, calm attention -- and a sense of duty to the Inner Good.
Best regards, Carlos Cardoso Aveline.
