Kenpo Karate Creed
"I come to you with only Karate, empty hands, I have no weapons, but should I be forced to defend myself, my principles or my honor, should it be a matter of life or death, of right or wrong; then here are my weapons, Karate, my empty hands."
Grandmaster Ed Parker
"To win one hundred victories in one hundred battles is not the highest skill. To subdue the enemy without fighting is the highest skill."
"War and Killing are wrong, but so it is wrong not to be prepared to defend one's self. They have taken our weapons but we still have our bodies. We have no knives, so make every fist into a mace. Without spears every arm must be a spear and every open hand a sword."
Daruma 28th Buddha
