Our philosophy is to work to bring out the best in each person. It’s not necessary to win awards or trophies, but if you can achieve personal bests, and strive to better yourself as a human being; that is our goal. We want each and every person to walk out at the end of class feeling empowered, and better about who they are. To know that they also have the ability to help others, and to be responsible to themselves.
Notes from Master Tomizaki
...to laugh often and much, to win the respect of intelligent people and the affection of children, to earn the appreciation of critics and endure the betrayal of false friends, to appreciate beauty, to find the best in others, to leave this world a bit better, whether by a healthy child, a garden patch, or redeemed social condition, to know that even one life has breathed easier because you have lived; this is to have success.
- Ralph W. Emerson
