On The Art of Karate- Art is to engage one's self fully, it is not a separate function. It is a fiber
that becomes part of you, unlike an activity you may be involved in. I am a artist of many
modalities. In my life Karate has created  a space for me to grow, change, and learn. I don't
think I could have survived without it. I thank the many members and instructors who have
been a part of my life- I will always owe them my truest effort towards the way. Wanda Gaston

"On this 20th anniversary many of us will tell stories of the experiences we’ve
had & where karate has taken us.  Retrospect is a good thing but not the only
thing.  Instead I ask, “Where will you take karate & the martial arts?”  Besides
the dojo, will you take it to work?  Will you take it into your family life?  Where
else can you take it?  If you lose it along the way, how will you find it again?  How
will you practice, display, & teach Shinkyudo in the next 20 years?  This will
define our future." - Dave Bossom

"I come to you with only Karate. My hands are empty, but I fear no man. Should I
be forced to defend myself My honor, or my principles;
Should it be a matter of right or wrong, or life or death, Then here are my weapons,
My empty hands."  Ed Parker
