The budō or martial ways, in contrast to bujutsu, are less concerned with practical and realistic application of techniques in the modern age, but much more focused on the perfection of the moral fiber of the individual budō student. In essence, the goal is to translate what the student learns in the dojo and apply it to everyday life.
