Modesty, Kindness, Honour ......

Hi all

I was browsing through my old articles on my blog and thought I share this one,

What are your experiences?


 Kind regards

Hi Les,

A good article as always! It reminds me of this quote:

“Karate aims to build character, improve human behaviour, and cultivate modesty; it does not, however, guarantee it.” – Yasuhiro Konishi

We also give the idea of character development “lip service” without really identifying the mechanism by which this is supposed to happen. I talk about that in this podcast:


As you point out, a person’s charters is revealed by their actions and interactions; not by the colour of their belt.  

All the best,
