A little bit of everything
It is normal for people to disagree.
For example; What is the best wine? Where is the best place to eat? What is the best movie in the last ten years?
Now while you and I may choose to disagree on any number of things, what I hope we can agree on is that Shotokan Karate-Do, or for that matter any other style of karate, is an art form worth practicing, preserving as truly as possible and passing on correctly to as many people as we can.
To that end I have posted here a wide variety of articles containing some of my thoughts, comments, and personal experiences all of which I hope will be of some benefit to you on your own journey down the karate-do road.
So train hard, train often, and above all remain loyal to your sensei and true to the teachings of your chosen style.

What people think of you, is not as
important as what you think of yourself.
Part the clouds - see the way.
"The objective of karate-do is to contribute to the evolution
of the human spirit through physical and mental training."
Sensei Peter Lindsay
