Budo requires constant work…

 – – – Mitsugi Saotome Shihan

People who are not hard-working will never discover a peaceful society. Laziness, dishonor, escaping responsibility – these are not good. Budo requires constant work – very intense, hard work to develop and complete projects. If we neglect hard work of this kind, society will suffer. This is more than just living.

That is why I built a dojo – my contribution.
