Budo is not a means of felling the opponent by force or by lethal weapons. Neither is it intended to lead the world to destruction by arms and other illegitimate means. True Budo calls for bringing the inner energy of the Universe in order, protecting the peace of the world, as well as preserving everything in nature in its right form.
Morihei Ueshiba
