The word karate is a combination of two Japanese characters: kara, meaning empty, and te, meaning hand; thus, karate literally means “empty hand.” Adding the suffix “do” (pronounced “doe”), meaning “way,”
karate-do or Karate-way implies karate as a total way of life that goes well beyond the self-defense applications. In traditional karate-do, we always keep in mind that the true opponent is oneself.
