In the public sphere, a noticeable loss of the identity of Budo fighting methods in favour of the escalating phenomenon of neo-gladiatorism takes place. Therefore, any form of promotion of Budo values should be disseminated to the largest possible audience. Hence, the purpose of this article was an expert point of view of the 2021 publishing novelty entitled “Karate Compendium”. The “Karate Compendium” is the essence of karate knowledge. This is an important piece of literature explaining what karate is and what karate is not, and clearly opposes the escalation of the phenomenon of neo-gladiatorism. The book creates a new direction to disseminate knowledge about Budo forms of physical activity.
