Karate Factoid

Fans of cheesy Hollywood movies may be interested to know that the inspiration for the movie “The Last Samurai” ( starring Tom Cruise) was Saigo Takamori. Saigo Takamori was the grandfather of the first president of the JKA, Saigo Kichinosuke.

"Try to see yourself as you truly are and try to adopt what is meritorious in the work of others. As a karateka you will of course often watch others practice. When you do and you see strong points in the performance of others, try to incorporate them into your own technique. At the same time, if the trainee you are watching seems to be doing less than his best ask yourself whether you too may not be failing to practice with diligence. Each of us has good qualities and bad; the wise man seeks to emulate the good he perceives in others and avoid the bad."
Funakoshi Gichin
