In the words of Sensei Tatsuo Suzuki, student of Master Ohtsuka Hironori, who was the founder of Wado Ryu karate, “…we build character through concentration, persistence and patience; on the physical side, we acquire bodily powers and control over our bodies. We learn how to relax our shoulders in action, how to concentrate our energy into a single point or movement, how to twist our waist or our fists, and how to maintain perfect balance at all times.”
