– One

I have translated the precepts of Sensei Funakoshi into Scots based on Sensei Cruz’s original work which can be found elsewhere on this site but just as karate is a lifetime’s study and practice so is the study of the masters’ writing and learning who came before present day teachers. As Sensei Hazard (our Sensei) states, ‘You are your own best teacher.’ The real understanding of this comes and deepens only with maturity. Sometime as the odd joint begins to protest in your body.

I will develop this theme over time…

1 Do not forget that karate-do begins and ends with rei.

– One


Balance it between Self and foe

Seen, unseen, past or future

All given what they would deny you:

Rei-respect: yours, theirs.
