Words of reverence
by Gogen Yamaguchi

  • Karate requires you to make a strenuous effort Night and day, before you achieve understanding.
  • Strong Spirit and Will Power, so that we can overcome our own interests.
  • It is very important to exercise every day, not to be come bored, not to give into anguish
  • Essentially the purpose of Karatedo was to protect ourselves, but now through Karatedo we are not only training our bodies, but our minds. Therefore, The Way is not to attack another, but to restrain yourself; we should not do harm to others.
  • Accordingly, your emphasis should not be on skills, but on training your mind. If you are impatient, you can not expect improvement in your skill
  • The major teachings of Karatedo are to achieve confidence in yourself, to be polite, maintain peace and tranquility of mind.
  • You should pay tribute to your parents, ancestors and master. You should also be in harmony with your friends.
  • You must keep them in mind and not become arrogant and over- confidant.
  • It is extremely important to keep and show reverence to your master, otherwise, even if you are great at Karate, you will follow the path of extreme, your desire for understanding can never be attained.
  • If you stop learning Karate, spontaneously you are forced to do that.
  • You have to know it is a long way to polish your skill, train your spirit and keep tranquility of mind; to get rid of our own interests and do what is the right thing.
  • After you become aware of these, you will know the greatness of Gods.
  • For you to achieve this you must discard your own interest and then you will understand The Way.
