to live by choice, not by chance; to make changes, not excuses; to be motivated, not manipulated; to be useful, not used; to excel, not to compete. I choose self-esteem, not self-pity. I choose to listen to my inner voice, Not the random opinion of others.
I choose to be me.

Martial artists are people of choice. This quote could be the mantra of the martial artist.
We choose this path (the Way) which dictates that we be people of stature. Thus we are steadfast in not only our beliefs but in our conduct too.
The road of the warrior is not well traveled. We are the people that we are because we choose to follow the way of the warrior. What do you choose?
