Meditation for the Week

Self-Control – “A man without self-control is like a city broken into and left without walls. (Proverbs 25:28)

Related imageGichin Funakoshi repeatedly pointed out that the first purpose in pursuing this art is the nurturing of a sublime spirit, a spirit of humility. Even the older practitioners placed stronger emphasis on the spiritual side of the art than on the techniques. It is said that in the training of body and spirit, and above all else, one should treat his opponent courteously and with the proper etiquette. It is not enough to fight with all one’s power; the real objective in [martial arts] is to do so for the sake of justice. The quality necessary to accomplish this is self-control. Funakoshi continues: “To become a victor, one must first overcome his own self.”
