Jannie Sensei's favorite Quotation
I hope martial artists are more interested in the root of the martial arts and not the different decorative branches, flowers, or leaves. It is futile to argue as to which leaf, which design of branches, or which attractive flower you like; when you understand the root, you understand all it’s blossoming.
