Stripe 1 – Alternating Maces (Front Two-Hand Low Push)

Stripe 1:
Let time be your measurement to skill and experience.
To hear is to doubt, to see is to be deceived, but to feel is to believe.

Katas or forms are expressions of basic skills.

One becomes great when he comes to the realization that what he knows is very little.
Condition and guts take over where knowledge and skill end.
