A true karate-man is one with the god-like capacity to think and feel for others, irrespective of their rank or position. One who possesses ideals so lofty, a mind so delicate that it lifts him above all things ignoble and base, yet strengthens his hands to raise those who have fallen - no matter how low.
The ulitmate aim of karate therefore lies not in victory or defeat, but in the prefection of its participants.
Gichin Funakoshi (1869-1957)
