The Way Of Life

KARATE-DO IS THE WAY OF LIFE.

TO SEARCH FOR THE OLD IS TO UNDERSTAND THE NEW.

THE OLD... THE NEW, THIS IS A MATTER OF TIME...

AND IN ALL THINGS ONE MUST KEEP A CLEAR MIND...

KARATE DO IS THE WAY,

AND I WILL PASS IT ON STRAIGHT AND WELL TO YOU.


To Be The Best

TO BE THE BEST, I HAVE TO GIVE MY BEST!

TO BE THE BEST, I HAVE TO GIVE MY BEST!

TO BE THE BEST, I HAVE TO GIVE MY BEST!

ALL THE TIME ... NOT SOME OF THE TIME

BUT ALL THE TIME!


My Empty Hands

I COME TO YOU WITH NOTHING BUT KARATE....

I HAVE NO WEAPONS, BUT SHOULD I BE FORCED

TO DEFEND MYSELF, MY FAMILY, OR MY HONOR

THEN HERE ARE MY WEAPONS.... MY EMPTY HANDS.


We Train Hard

We Train Hard

And We Train To Win

I am an American Karate Academy Warrior

This is my patch

The RED represents the blood which I shall never shed

The BLUE represents the sky that I look up to

The WHITE represents purity

The BLACK is the border that keeps it all together

The 5 GOLDEN STARS represent the 5 senses

The TIGER represents power by land

The EAGLE represents power by air

The YIN and YANG represent opposites, good and evil

This is my American Karate Academy Patch and I wear it proudly.
