Seek skill and strength

Irrespective of all the politics in the Karate World, just train! Seek to become stronger every day.
 Many people have high Dan, grading rights, and qualifications, but do not have the technique to back these accolades. Such karateka know how weak they are, and hide behind their ‘political qualifications’, showing up, paying money, and kissing ass. The funny thing is, everyone knows who they are.
Don’t be these “karateka”. Seek to be strong and skillful
through daily training. Talk with your technical skill and strength. Irrespective of political outcomes, you will have effective karate and the greater karate world will respect you.
