“The black belt test should be something you live, and in the process of living it you inspire your community.”
“Any idiot can be a martial arts master. You want to be a cognizant, compassionate, participative engaged human being. It’s easy to be a master, it’s harder to be those things as a human being.”
“Martial arts isn’t just meant to be on the mat. You’re supposed to take that stuff you practice on the mat so diligently and apply it in the world to the benefit of other people in your community.”
“I don’t believe in jiu-jitsu, I don’t belive in tae kwon do, I don’t believe in styles. Those are brand names, it seperates us from them.”
