Shotokan: Karate Ni Sente Nashi


“There is no first atatck in Karate.” A maxim that has become so closely associated with the name of Gichin Funakoshi that it is inscribed upon his memorials in Engakuji Temple, Kamakura, Japan, and Onoyama Koen in Naha, Okinawa.



On these dojo scrolls are written maxims of special significance to all martial artists. They remind us of the core principles governing our training, and how we should live our lives. Printed on high quality, heavyweight art paper in size 11” x 17,” they are shipped flat in cardboard to prevent creasing, and are easy to mount in standard size picture frames. Designs marked * are also available as embroidery designs.
