Never bow your head to the enemy, is this true in Karate?

When 2 Karate guys are about to fight they face each other and bow heads. In my opinion you should always bow your head no matter what out of respesect to Karate, and if the enemy attacks you and kills you while your head was down, he will forever be remembered as a coward, and it proves you won, even if you two never physically fought.

    You're supposed to lower your head without taking your eyes off your opponent!

    😄 Japs take honor seriously. They'd never attack you while bowing. Ever.

    I highly doubt their students can be taught if they're that way. 

    Asians have a thing about bowing in general. So any martial art, they don't attack while bowing.
