Shotokai Karate-do, CHILE
a fighting art?
this is the image mass media together with unscrupulous "masters" have given
Karate-do around the world.
Since it's origin Karate-do has always been an art for personal
development and secondarily as a self-defence method. O-sensei (the creator
of Karate-do) said and insisted "There doesn't exist an offensive attitude
in Karate" or "there is no first attack in Karate-do", this does
not require further explanation.
