Eastern Philosophies in Wayne - Nackord Karate System

Eastern Philosophies

At the foundation of the NKS is The Way of Three. While the purpose of external martial arts systems is the control of one’s opponent, these Eastern philosophies come from internal martial arts where the purpose is to control one’s own health and emotion. Ancient exercises focus on breathing, stretching the body, strengthening joints and spine, and calming the mind.
