Words of Encouragement to Remember

From 1/10/10:

Sir, you are an innately honorable and classy guy. (And if you ever need to hear why, I can list the reasons; let me know!) Furthermore, you and Maria run a top-notch operation.  Your students are not only good martial artists, but they are also good people…at least part of which is due to your influence.  You place your teachings into a life-context for your students.  You help them learn to make choices in life, and to work for whatever path they chose.  That’s a gift that will stay with them for their entire lives. That’s a rare gift….That’s not just my opinion, but the opinion of every person with whom I’ve ever discussed you.  You inspire loyalty in those who know you. That reputation will, and does, speak for itself.   L.P.
