Karate – The Art of Empty Self
The Art of Karate is a mirror reflecting the root of fear, which is the destructive division brought about by the image of ourselves.
This division is the basis of psychological conflict. Because of the confident and trusting environment fostered by the Art of Karate, the student has the opportunity to allow this conflict, with its aggression and tension, to surface into the light of awareness.
Allowing this fundamental conflict to be observed, without any action to change it, is the essence of “empty self” and the heart of the Art of Karate.
