Did you ever ask yourself what "karate" REALLY means?
The way of the empty hand, karate-do, has often been likened to a journey up a mountain. But, while there are many paths that lead to the top of the mountain, there is only one moon to be seen for those who achieve its summit. So, one day I asked myself; what exactly does that "moon" consist of? What is the "aim" of karate? Self-fulfillment? Shiny trophies? The answers were as many as they were diverse.
