The Mystery of the Body
We pursue truth through the repetition of fundamental techniques (Kihon).However, there is something more we can see over and above the most furious repetition; this is the enormous power that lies beyond this pursuit of truth.This power encompasses an exchange between the spirit and the body. In other words, it is a fusion that- in an instant- surpasses knowledge.This moment is something that exists in the real world. If we may call it so, it is the power of youth that keeps on chasing miracles, the most complicated mystery of our youthful bodies.The youth of those who practice Karate understands no limitation.
KARATE and International society
The form of Budo we call Karate is an art that has captured the hearts and minds of people all over the world; for this Karate must, I think, be highly honored for its role as a bridge that helps people cross national borders and promote cultural exchange. All over the world, in country after country, young people are pushing themselves through hard training and discipline. It is our big hope in the KWF that that when they grow up and leave the nest they way of Karate that they have learned will help them make an outstanding contribution to international society.
