Karate is like boiling water: without heat, it returns to its tepid state.


Weeks, months and still a technique will not yield

The Ribbentrop-Molotov pact between body and grey matter

Purchases sweat and blood often for nought.


The paradox in the art not the violence:

The more effort and furnace rendering self

Calmer and more fluid


The practise:

Not like water, be water.
