Heroscape & Karate - Martial Arts

Posted February 8th, 2010 at 04:29 PM by kolakoski
I have been totally focussed on the construction of 500 point armies for tournament play, and maps for the same, since the Mineola tournament started. Lately, its been all about doing so within Valhalla Society restrictions. I have pretty much ignored the "casual" scene. Then I stumbled upon Sylvano's "We Leave The Dead On The Field" blog post. It brought to mind a few things.

I have been studying Karate since 1996. I am now a Nidan (second degree Black Belt). The founder of modern Karate was Gichin Funakoshi (1868-1957). Among other wise things, he said that the primary purpose of Karate is the development of character. There are many dojos that are very popular because of their focus on competition. More traditional practitioners lament this for a number of reasons. One reason is that tournaments are artificial contexts. Another is that those with such a focus often are encouraged to ignore the primary purpose of Karate (see above).
