Why do We Bow in the Martial Arts

We bow because in Japanese that is the formal way of greeting each other. In Karate, we use it not only as a greeting but also as a mark of respect, we are showing respect to the art that we practice and to the ones who came before us who paved the way. The bow also shows humility and that you are thinking of yourself less with the intention to learn more. So the bow is really about giving! When you give respect, cooperation and humility you will be in a better state to learn more and be happier. So keep on bowing
