It was not uncommon for itinerant Priest to able to fight, as they would frequently be in danger on their wanderings from wild animals as well as men. Even Gautama Buddha himself had been a warrior before he became the Buddha when he established Buddhism, he saw no contradiction in the idea of a man of peace and love also being skilful in Combat.

In Okinawa, Karate was practised secret for hundreds of years until 1901, then it was brought to light as a part of regular curriculum in the first Middle school of okinawa Master Anhou Itosu was the first Instructor.
