A Message For The Martial Artist
"I tread carefully on this constant blurring road . Each step guided by my reflection in your eyes. My heart beats in rhythm with yours as our journey intertwines and I know my path to be true. I am humbled to know I travel in your footsteps, and that our skills, character, and compassion extends outside the confines of the dojo. My burden grows light at each opportunity of service and I gladly welcome each and every instance.  I am at your service, as your student, teacher, and friend with humility as my chosen gi. 

I respect you not for your rank or chosen style, but for your charitable and compassionate heart. I applaud not your fighting skills and knowledge of your art, but for your restraint in using them. I admire not your ability to master all techniques of your style, but in your ability to teach them to others. I praise not only your determination in living a sincere life, but in inspiring others to do so as well. I celebrate you, the martial artist, and your chosen lifelong journey."
