"Try to do exactly as you are taught without complaining or quibbling."
"When you are learning a new technique, practice it
wholeheartedly until you truly understand it."
"Don't pretend to be a great master and don't try to show off your strength."
"Remember that you must always have a deep regard for courtesy, and you must be respectful and obedient toward your seniors."
"You must ignore the bad and adopt the good."
"Think of everyday life as karate training."
