Fudoshin was founded from the need to give martial artist's the continued ability to learn, train and rank with no matter to their wealth or their inability to pay and be judged for their commitment to the martial arts and its traditions. Neither testing nor certification should become important goals in life for the karateka. The path to perfection is as important and fulfilling as perfection itself. It is a life long commitment to personal fulfillment. This is what Fudoshin (unstoppable mind) stands for.
