The Pursuit of Peace, The Martial Arts Tradition Continues

The Dojo Motto

Love is the most powerful force in humankind. It can take us to a world of heaven and makes no enemies.

True Karate Love is based on understanding, mutual trust and respect.

Love is being in balance, that is, in harmony with the self and others.

Love is universal like your soul.

Love is selflessness, lives in our mind and no-one can defeat it.

We, Karate practitioners, have to create and foster the power of love through the way of our daily training.

Without love there is no true value in our life.

Therefore, Karate towa ai.

Written by Kenshu Hideo Watanabe, September 1994
