"Never be afraid to make a mistake. You will make mistakes thoughout your life.
Only when you die will you cease to make mistakes and then you have just made the biggest mistake of your life."

"Garbage is garbage! Even if you practice it a thousand times it will still be garbage."

"I hope to discover much more about karate as I grow older. I am only 55, so I am still raw material."

"We cannot control desire, that is why we struggle. But without struggle, we can never achieve anything."

"Sho shin wasureru bekarazu."
"Always train with a beginner's mind."
