Budo is a practical and spiritual path based on the active participation of body, mind and heart.

Its aim is to make the practitioner a better human being. The goal might be far, but the path's boundaries are clear: A better human being is one who can find balance. A martial arts practitioner has a speciality and a destiny: to create an inner harmony of intention, awareness and technique even in the midst of strife.
