Technique of the Week (April 6th, 2008)

From Sensei David Tamir
Ueshiro Suntree YMCA Karate Dojo
--------------------------------------------------------------


Recently I heard on the training deck a quote from Hanshi, which
conveyed so much in so few words:

"Karate is 99% Practice and 1% Theory".

Hanshi explained that he adapted this quote from Patabi Jois, the 93
year old founder of Ashtanga Yoga, who said this about Yoga.
