The true Path of a Budo-Ka
By: Deena Naidu
Budo is often portrayed in this modern day as violent by those who do not practice it correctly and who do not understand the inner significance of the art. Many have turned this once sacred art into martial combat, used to injure other for the sake of self glory. The true art of Budo is only for the purpose of self defence, preservation (body) through proper practical training methods, self discipline (mind) through the teaching of human values and self enlightenment (spirit) by surrendering to God.
