In battle, if you you make your opponent flinch, you have already won.
The true science of martial arts means practicing them in such a way that they will be useful at any time, and to teach them in such a way that they will be useful in all things.
True warriors are fierce because their training is fierce.
Whatever your determination or will power, it is foolish to try to change the nature of things. Things work the way they do because that is the way of things
A man cannot understand the art he is studying if he only looks for the end result without taking the time to delve deeply into the reasoning of the study.
Do not think dishonestly... Distinguish between gain and loss in worldly matters. Develop intuitive judgement and understanding for everything. Perceive those things which cannot be seen. Pay attention even to trifles. Do nothing which is of no use.
In time, all things work to your advantage when you pursue them with an open heart.
Fixation is the way to death. Fluidity is the way to life.
No Fear, No Hesitation, No Surprise, No Doubt
Truth is not what you want it to be; it is what it is, and you must bend to its power or live a lie.
