Shotokai Karate-do, Chile
Each year in the month of April, a great number of new students enroll in the karate classes of the universities’ physical education departments – most of them, fortunately, with the dual purpose of building up their spiritual as well as physical strength. Nonetheless, there are always some whose only desire is to learn karate so as to make use of it in a fight. These almost inevitably drop out of the course before half a year has passed, for it is quite impossible for any young person whose objective is so foolish to continue very long at karate. Only those with a higher ideal will find karate interesting enough to persevere in the rigors it entails.
