For me —
karate-Do not only just about fighting. It’s art of living/ art of Budo.
The fighting/strength of an individual is not measured by how much one can control others, but by how much on can control oneself”
The principles of Karate (and All Martial Arts) speaks to issues of character and spirituality, as well as the need for courage, honesty, perseverance, loyalty, trust, integrity, and humility.

“The practitioners of Karate will learn to follow the path of sincerity. They will learn self control and compassion.”
