Karate is an endless non-compromising search for deep self-awareness and improving of character through endless training. Karate is a powerful educational tool that enables every student to identify and face his/her weaknesses and develop improved habits that will help to overcome those weaknesses.
The way a person behaves in every-day life is equalent to the way he practices karate and vice versa. Thus, to me karate is life itself.
Karate for me is a way to exposing the hidden inner powers within myself, a way of flow with minimum effort and a way of connecting to myself and to others.
Karate for me is a way of life. It teaches me to keep my center at any given moment. Traditional karate to me is a challenge. It keeps me curious, continuously learning, and constantly striving for perfection and improvement.
