Our Mission IKU NYC promotes Traditional Kyokushinkai Karatedō 極真会館 空手道 via Shikan Suetto 只管 スエット or Just to Sweat, which means that one encompasses and embodies one's training to transcend oneself, which manifests in all facets of one's life. This tenet to leave one's Ego at the door is at the forefront of one's Karatedō (Empty-Handed Way), which is a Path or Road, hence the Dō, which represents one's journey in one's life.
