Karate is not a competitive art, nor an art of fighting with empty hands. It is Karatedo. Why "Do," [way] and not "Jutsu" [art]? This is the point that I want Karate instructors to think about.
Kenjutsu did not become Kendo just by changing one word. Neither did Jujitsu become Judo simply by changing the name.
Seeking the "way" is simply raising one's own human nature, and becoming more magnanimous. This being the case, karatedo must be something that helps all people lead a better life." - Kaicho Tadashi Nakamura (The Human Face of Karate)
