Swimming ‘Round the Polishing Stone

An interesting concept can be taken from the Chinese and their efforts in raising the fish koi. If koi are placed in a pond with nothing but water, they will become lazy, listless, and subject to disease.

Place a stone in that same pond, and swimming about it the koi will tend to grow energetic and strong.

The way of Karate, the Do, can be thought of in the same regard. A life long pursuit of excellence tends to make one energetic and strong with focus and purpose.

Encouraging each other in the dojo and challenging one’s self to grow and change will serve to polish character and build a healthier lifestyle.
