“One of my instructors once said – Training in karate teaches us not only self-defense but to respect others as well as ourselves. We train our body to be strong, and our mind and spirit to be patient, in order to become the best human beings we can be. Karate is a way to develop a person as an individual. Everything we learn in the dojo, or training hall, is not always easy, often times it can be very difficult and demanding. This is also true of life. If we can overcome obstacles in our training, it enables us to have strong character to do the same in our everyday lives.” – Sensei Heermans
