Ikigai refers to having a reason for being by living a life of passion and purpose that financially sustains you. Per Wikipedia:
Ikigai is a Japanese concept that means “a reason for being”. The word refers to having a direction or purpose in life, that which makes one’s life worthwhile, and towards which an individual takes spontaneous and willing actions giving them satisfaction and a sense of meaning to life.https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ikigai
It involves living at the intersection of passion, purpose, profit and demand (it’s wanted or needed).
Ikigai for us means giving that which we love — karate, martial arts and inner training — to others who share our passion for all it offers.
We hope that includes you.

We’d like to help.
