The Black Belt Phoenix
Here's a shocker. Black Belts often aren't the natural athletes; they're just the ones who won't quit. Giving up isn't in their DNA. They're so tenacious you couldn't drive them off the floor if you tried.
Black Belts are the ones who persevere, day after day and year after year, until, gradually, an amazing transformation occurs. In the crucible of their efforts, they change.
Like phoenixes emerging from the flame, they shed their weaker selves and, with balanced humility, now go forth in the world as graceful, swift, powerful, confident. Through Karate, they have recreated themselves.
Yours in Martial Arts,
