Follow not in the footsteps of the masters, but rather seek what they sought.
Comments; Never think you are finished. The end of one journey is the beginning of another. What this implies, is that once 'ONE' masters the waza-techniques in any given style, once you have mastered the ability to strategically control your destiny, once you have skillfully developed the attitude of battle ~ "Seek outside knowledge, and ADD it to the basic and advanced principles of what you have already come to understand." Solidify your existing art. Too many times, pupils who achieve greatness, move on. Take new knowledge and move deeper into your existing art. "It takes one life to learn an art, and a second life to master it."
