  • “Traditionalists often study what is taught, not what there is to create.”

  • “Although the belt color shows, it doesn’t mean you know.”
  • “To hear is to doubt, to see is to be deceived, but to feel is to believe.”
  • “There are no pure styles of karate. Purity comes only when pure knuckles meet pure flesh, no matter who delivers or receives.”
