The result of true karate is natural, effortless action, and the confidence, humility, openness and peace only possible through perfect unity of mind and body. This is the core teaching of Zen, the basis of Bushido, and our philosophy.
True karate is this: that in daily life ones’ mind and body be trained and developed in a spirit of humility, and that in critical times, one be devoted utterly to the cause of justice.Gichin Funakoshi
