The credit belongs to those people who are actually in the arena...
who know the great enthusiasms,
the great devotions to a worthy cause;
Who at best, know the triumph of high achievement;
and who at worst, fail by daring greatly...
so that their place shall never be with those cold and timid souls,
who know neither victory nor defeat.

Theodore Roosevelt - 26th President of the USA

“I have long since come to believe that people never mean half of what they say, and that it is best to disregard their talk and judge only their actions” - Dorothy Day


Don’t believe that the lines on your palm predict your future.
Those who don't have hands still have a future.
You determine your own future.


As to methods there may be a million and then some, but principles are few. The man who grasps principles can successfully select his own methods. The man who tries methods, ignoring principles, is sure to have trouble.  Ralph Waldo Emerson


The ultimate aim of karate lies not in victory nor defeat, but in the perfection of the character of its participants.   Gichin Funakoshi
