"The applications of kata have their limits and one must come to understand this. The techniques of kata were never developed to be used against a professional fighter, in an arena or on the battlefield. The were, however, most effective against someone who had no idea of the strategy being used to counter their aggressive behavior." - Choki Motobu

"Of course you should concentrate primarily on your karate, but do not overlook the value of learning as much as you can about other kinds of martial arts and sports, too. In that way you will improve your fitness level, expand your range of knowledge in general, and also improve your ability to respond more effectively in self-defense" - Ankichi Arakaki (speaking to Shoshin Nagamine, encouraging not to give up Judo or Okinawan Sumo)
