* Karatedo practice begins and ends with courtesy. In training, both partners are, in fact, trying to improvethemselves and each other. They must therefore control themselves to avoid any risk or injury. The true goal of karatedo is to win without hurting the opponent; that is the meaning of the bow which precedes and follows every act in karatedo.
