Many Karates

Some people practice Karate for exercise.

Others for self-defense.

Others for tournaments.

Others as a family activity.

Others as part of a way of life.

There are many interpretations of Karate, not only one. While I may practice Karate a certain way, I respect the others. I am happy when a new student begins Karate training at any dojo. Each new student adds to the art. Each new student may be the next Matsumura, Itosu or Chibana.

We need to think of Karate as a whole, and recognize the many different way to interpret it.
