Karate consist the powerful counter attack and useful defensive martial art that trains people physically and mentally. We should know how to defend, how to counter attack to our foes. 

Karate can promote self-discipline, self-control, self-respect, self-confidence, courtesy, patience, perseverance and loyalty.

But, please remember that “patience” and "forgiveness" are the best self-defense. Patience is the best part of human nature.
Patience is a virtue. BUT, patience has its limits. Take it too far, and it is cowardice.

Powerful drugs are dangerous. Poison is frightening. However, there is no one in the medical world today who advocates shunning drugs. The danger of Powerful drugs and poisons depends on their usage, and when applied correctly, they can be of great benefit. Karate, improperly used, is certainly dangerous and vicious. But for the same reason that it is dangerous, karate, too, if properly applied, can yield results of great value.

At the time a patient receives the instruction for a powerful drug, he is try to understand its nature and is taught its proper usage. In the same way, those who would learn Karate-do must be do understand it at the outset and be instructed in its proper use. The correct understanding of karate and its proper use is Karate. We should be used karate correctly truly.

Sport karate is good. We're not rejecting Sport Karate. But real Karate is the real self defense. In other words, "Real Karate" is the substantial self defense martial art in combination of sport Karate.   However, we strongly DISLIKE the "bouncing in Karate (almost SPORT KARATE)" which we usually see at tournaments. We strongly DISLIKE Sport Karate without bunkai, advanced kumite, and morality. If Sport Karate involves advanced bunkai and advanced sparring technique instead of bouncing (just for show) ", then Sport Karate would be called and recognized as "Real Karate."  Today almost sport Karate is very different from ancient real Karate.

Real KARATE is very practical in real life and the practical self defense that uses beyond both HAND and LEG techniques, blocks, and attacks.  The “Real Karate” consists Kihon, Kata, Kumite, and meditation systematically and theoretically. 

Real Karate is the real combat striking martial art using punching, kicking, knee strikes, elbow strikes, open hand techniques, chokes, dodges, , joint manipulations, grappling, throws, take downs blocks, strikes, throws, restraints. 

Karate player can defend and counter attack himself, for safe and survive. But, real karate has never been fighting and true karate will never be a fighting art only!
The keys to remember are: You can use only that amount of force to your enemies (foes) that's necessary to protect yourself from immediate harm. You will be able to defend completely yourself by your karate. You will be able to defend your loved ones if someone physically attacks on either you or your friends.  BUT you don't use your counter attack deadly force on him/ them. You should know/ obey about the legal limits on self-defense.

In all of my 44 years experienced as a karate martial artist, I never taught any of my students to how to FIGHT powerfully only. I ever taught any of my students to how to PATIENCE as much as we can.  True karate training was never designed to be an art of fighting only.

If some martial artists such as karate/ kung fu/ taekwondo are just arrogant or boastful or hostile or belligerent or AGGRESSIVE. We want suggest their masters must have taught them to be calm, self-control, PATIENCE, humble and not to use such arts against anyone or try to boast or insult or abuse or aggressive about it to someone.

Not many are like that. Some martial artists who is also learning the art is a very good and kind person. Most are humble and calm. But we'll definitely find some arrogant ones in every field.

A dirty fish spoils the pond. But we cannot blame the whole pond for that fish. It is a two way thing. One bad person can spoil the whole society and similarly one good person can fix people around them.

Please remember these quotations. “An empty vessel makes the loudest sound.” and "All that glitters is NOT gold" reminds us that something glittering may not be gold. Gold color is yellow. But every yellow is NOT gold.
