Martial arts have much more to offer than purely fighting.

My years of experience with American karate has led me to believe, for the most part, it has turned into a money making endeavor where those involved are more involved with the $$ than with living the life they speak of (if they speak of it)...my apologies to those of you that have truly kept the art itself in your heart and have not compromised your values.

Any art of the "-do" nature as opposed to the "-itsu" (i.e. judo vs jujitsu) should be teaching "the way", as in ethics, morals, values and character building.

While, kyudo is not understood by many in the Western world, it has remained pure to its nature based in Japanese tradition. While it is very much a budo, modern kyudo deals more so with the "rightness of self". With this "shooting can be realized".

The martial arts as a whole have so much to offer that is being overlooked by so many!

The suffix is "jutsu" not "itsu" btw.

Hence "karate-do" or "karate-jutsu".

Many people make a big deal about the suffix. In the end, all traditional far Eastern martial arts have an ethos along the "do" lines, irrespective of what they call themselves. The Japanese weapons schools as well as Jigaro Kano's judo influenced karate to take on a "do" suffix principally to give respectability.
