    Karate is not about fighting but is about making you a better person.

    If you practice Kata you will get good at fighting

    To get better you must constantly do basics

    Kata has deep and hidden meaning

    It takes a lifetime to master Karate

    Almost anything to do with ki or chi regarding its unseen, unexplained effects on your opponent and you.

    Also the ability to cause someone actual harm through kiai (with the exception of shouting directly into their ear)

    I have not posted for awhile, but had to smile at this. Certain manufacturers I have noticed do not preshrink. Although "Don't" is a pretty strong work, I would strongly encourage you to read the little tags before laundering MA belts.

    Black belts tend to shrink in the closet, all by themselves.

    And for some reason, the brands they sell to us "over 30-somethings" tend to shrink the fastest.

    Having a black belt means you are a martial arts expert.
    A shodan in one style is the same skill level as a shodan in any other.
