Tomizaki's Champions Kung Fu Institute

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.

Philosophy of a Champion

  • Never change what works

  • Grasp whatever you can, be open-minded about everything

  • Learn what you want to learn, but never close your mind to something different

  • Knowing yourself helps you to know others

  • Never stop learning, never limit yourself to what you think you may attain

  • To be in 100% physical shape you must first be in 100% mental shape

  • Respect your judgement.  Remember you cannot fool yourself

  • Take defeat as a process of learning

  • Never degrade yourself by thinking negatively

  • If you lose, figure out why you lost and find the defenses which will help you the next time

  • In and out of the ring, the secret of a martial artist is to control his anger

  • There is no time for being old-fashioned.  One must progress

  • Learn to train your mind to be ahead of your body

  • Beat the pain mentally and you can go forever

  • Don’t try to be just as good as somebody else, strive to be better

  • The way you train is the way you react

– Notes from Master Tomizaki

Success... 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
