Kyu do mugen

Brushed by Miyazato Eiichi sensei, and hangs on the shomen inside the Jundokan dojo, Okinawa.

Kyu do mugen (There is no end to seeking/learning  the way): there is no end to seeking or learning. Even at advanced levels, there are still higher levels to reach. There is no point at which one's skill or understanding is complete. Learning "the way" is done day by day, minute by minute, second by second, now, to eternity. There is no faster way.

Eiichi Miyazato (宮里 栄一 Miyazato Eiichi, July 5, 1922 – December 11, 1999)

Miyazato Sensei was a very simple man. He did not seek out covers of magazines, make huge sums of money, or want the power of running a large karate organization. He truly practiced the teachings of Chojun Miyagi. Simple, Direct, and Uncomplicated. Just have fun training and just do it. That’s what Miyazato Sensei did every day at his dojo in Okinawa until he passed away.
