I have been studying martial arts (Karate, Jiu-jitsu, Filipino Martial Arts, & Muay Thai) for quite some years now. It became my passion since I was young because I grew up in a dangerous country (Philippines) and I wanted to learn self defense for my own well-being and for discipline. The only thing I need now is a code that I can truely follow and live under. I am inspired by how the Samurai's lived and die as warriors. Then I became interested in the way of Bushido. Is it disrespectful for me to study and follow Bushido if I'm not Japanese? I just wanted to ask out of respect. Thank you.
