Karatedo is a form of traditional Budo (martial way of life). It is commonly thought of as a way to defend oneself from attack. Although self defense skills are included in the training, the Karatedo experience offers much more.
There are many styles and systems of Karatedo. This particular form is called Karatedo Doshinkan. It continues a long tradition as a way of individual development through group training. It provides an environment for improving our health, understanding ourselves and our relationships with others, and learning to become the best we can be in every area of our lives. As such, it is not a sport, and there are no competitions, tournaments or sparring matches.
