Philosophy

Personal Creed
My work is a reflection of myself. My execution of martial arts technique is also a reflection of my self. In whatever productive work I do, I will create a masterpiece. It will reflect my genius and virtuosity. In all things, I will work most seriously, intelligently and wholeheartedly. To it, I commit my soul, my body and spirit, and even my whole life fortune. I am a doer, a venturer, a winner.
Student creed

To build true confidence through KNOWLEDGE in the mind, HONESTY in the heart, and STRENGTH in the body. To keep friendship with one another and to build a strong and happy community. Never to fight to achieve selfish ends, but to develop MIGHT FOR RIGHT

A leader is best…

A leader is best when people barely know he exists. Not so good when people obey and acclaim him. Worse when they despise him. But of a good leader, who talks little, when his work is done, his aim fulfilled, they will say : “We did it ourselves.”

Student’s Four Keys to Time Management

  1. Set a goal and be positive
  2. Plan and organize your work
  3. Do one thing at a time
  4. Do it now and never postpone
yesterday is ashes … tomorrow is wood
only today does the fire burn brightly
thoughts produce action
action creates habit
habit controls one’s  destiny
the man who fails to plan
plans to fail.

“Nothing in the world can take the place of persistence. Talent will not; nothing is more common than unsuccessful men with talent. Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb. Education will not; the world is full of educated derelicts. Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent. The slogan, ‘press on’ has solved, and always will solve, the problems of the human race.”
Calvin Coolidge

“I never failed once. It just happened to be a 2000-step process.”
Thomas Edison, American inventor, responding to a reporter who asked how it felt to fail 2000 times before successfully inventing the light bulb
