There are some things I have gathered over the years which should be shared. I won't include the whole speech, but here is a paragraph or two from Master Takara. 10th dan.

The mastery of Karate-do requires dedication and strenuous effort. the way of Karate is fueled by the conflict within oneself, and may be thought of as a life-long marathon which can be won only through self discipline, hard training, and creative efforts,The pursuit of Karate-do is the quest for self mastery. The true study of Karate must transcend the mere physical aspects. It must involve ones total being. Through the person, the techniques become art. In true Karate, mind and body and technique must become oneness. Through Karate training we can attain the highest ideals of beauty and strength. The fusing of the mind and body in Karate is undescribably beautiful and spiritual. The flow of mind, when totally absorbed during kata practice, brings a person into complete contact with the essence and core of his/her being. It is here that the spirit of Karate-do is found.
speech given 8/9/1999
