Karate is what has given me hope throughout my life. It is the teacher that has guided me to where I am now.
Still, I sometimes have dreams about being assailed by someone. This tells me that there is still a part of me that has an attachment to life, and that I have a way to go yet. The more I know, the more I climb, yet the mountain just gets higher.
The more I try, the more I focus, the depth is limitless. There is no end in sight. That is karate, my life.
