Thought For The Week


Thought for the Week (February 26th, 2001)

--------------------------------------------------------------

Aristotle said: "Courage is the will to go forth". 

We, in Shorin Ryu learned from Hanshi, to 'go forward'.
Kyoshi very simply has stated: "Whatever it takes, just do it".

This is courage in its raw state. 

Of course in our many paths to the summit, we must keep training to better 
define all facets of our endeavors, to get and to give, and to try and remain 
humble. This is the true circle of life. Big breath, big spirit!

Arigato.
