O sensei

Konichiwa o sensei Funakoshi

Domo arigato

I am humbled

i bow before you

for without the format

we are blank slates

we are nothing but a passing drones

we would be mindless 

in our kata’s

in our kumite.

For the ranges yourself defined

there wouldnt be any of my hand.

You took my hand and filled it

with all i can be,

not without

nor a form to be in.

In that empty way

i can be




through any means possible

because you made me lethal to my own

through which was empty

but humbled enough

so i can praise you.


Gichin Funakoshi
