Mondo is a method of Zen Buddhism, also known as "Zen dialogue" or "Zen conversation."
A kind of question-and-answer game between students and master, in which students ask questions and the master gives answers that encourage students to reflect on their own thoughts.
The Mondo Principle is considered a very effective way to integrate Zen philosophy into daily life and to better cope with life's challenges. However, it requires an openness and willingness to question one's own beliefs and explore new ways of thinking and acting.
Ultimately, Mondo is a method of gaining a deeper understanding of oneself.
The Mondo principle and other teachings from karate are covered primarily at our karate retreats.
