Karate Quotes

The ultimate aim of the art of Karate lies not in victory or defeat, but in the perfection of the characters of its participants.
Gichin Funakoshi

To practice kata is not to memorize an order. You must find the kata that work for you, understand them, digest them and stick with them for life.
Gichin Funakoshi

There is no such thing as perfect karate.
Richard Amos
There is no first attack in karate.
Gichin Funakoshi
Each one of us starts Karate with some particular reason: to be a good fighter, to keep in good shape, to protect oneself. I wanted to become very strong myself when I first began. But Karate training soon teaches that real strength is facing oneself strictly, with severe eyes. This is the first condition of martial arts training. Therefore, all SKA members must be strong inwardly but quite gentle to others. As we train together, each contributing to a good atmosphere, let's try to bring out that serious strong mentality from deep inside.  ~ Tsutomu Ohshima
