Though I don´t practice the competitive way in Karate, I share the most important message that I´ve token from an interview to the Kata World Champion – Rika Usami.
“Although your goal may often look hard to achieve at first, if you continually make efforts toward your goal, then your time, energy and commitment will never have been wasted. So, keep it up as much as you can. Stay strong until you win against yourself. And at the end of the day, you will always be the winner.”
