“Your spirit is the true shield.
Move like a beam of light, fly like lightning, strike like thunder, move in circles around a stable center.
Everything in heaven and earth breathes. Breath is the thread that ties the whole creation together.
The first and strongest enemy is the violence within you.
Create each day anew.
When an opponent attacks, I move my mind.”
~O’ Sensei Morihei Ueshiba (1883-1969)
