"Of all the world's creatures, only the human being has been granted the capacity to expand and improve mental and physical abilities by his own accord. And so it is with karate-do that this capacity is given another interpretation through the unlimited seeking of improved technique. This unlimited seeking becomes a part of the overall expansion of human abilities.

Although ranking levels may be finite by their very definition, the seeking of karate development has no limits. The human capacity to expand and the potential to achieve are frontiers that call for continued exploration."    --Hidetaka Nishiyama
