Action with effect keeps an opponent in check.
Accuracy must accompany speed, for it takes both to secure victory.
Although belt color show, it is no proof that you know.
To desire something does not mean to accomplish it. To perspire for it makes accomplishment a reality.
The man who knows how will always be a student, but the man who knows why will continue to be the instructor.

When a man’s mind is occupied with his own injury, he is not apt to think of retaliation.
Principles of motion take precedent over the sequence of motion.
Whether it is a big ship or little ship, the same size hole placed correctly in the hull can sink it.
Sophistication is no more than simplicity compounded.
Willpower is the hammer that drives the action.
