Budo vs Martial Art ?

Would you consider applicable the translation of budo as martial art ?

The word martial has its roots in the roman mythology and it brings its own concept.

Here is an interesting article:

Today, how would you translate or interpret budo ? Is there any other word that could describe it ?
