Fudokan is connected to tradition and self defense. A correct execution of basic techniques in Fudokan requires mental and physical harmony, a unity of physical and mental aspects in the interpretation of each single technique. The mind must be completely calm and open, in the sense of initial, primal wariness. This principle is embedded even in the name of Fudokan: a house of calm wisdom. The calm mind directs every part of the body at every moment.
Fudokan karate encompasses personal, moral and ethical guidelines identical to those described by Gichin Funakoshi - the moral code of traditional karate. It is in Fudokan where the space for applying and realizing this code remains open.
