What is “budo
Budo karate is karate that not only strengthens the body, but forges
the mind and tempers the spirit as well. Kicking and punching without morals
and compassion is merely violence. However, through proper, arduous training
in karate we learn to be humane. By sharing the hard experiences encountered
in the dojo (training hall) we learn to respect and have compassion
for one another. Budo karate stresses the development of character and the
refinement of human qualities.
