I have heard many a pragmatic martial artist explain the difference between “Do and “Jutsu,” and maybe I am just reading into this the wrong way, but I feel as though the people who study the pragmatic approach to the martial arts have the impression that these two philosophies cannot co-exist. I truly understand that spiritual essence and positive thinking alone cannot defend you in a fight, for it is necessary for you to apply “Jutsu” or the practical side of your art. However, a person who walks down the street with confidence and his/her head held high (as opposed to timidly staring at their shoes) is less likely to become a victim. So the use of martial arts to become a better person as well as an effective fighter, I would think, would combine “Do” & “Jutsu.” And again, maybe I am just misinterpreting many a martial artists’ explanation of the two terms. What are your thoughts on the subject?
