So climb your own path true and strong…

Thanks to my friend Rudy Vasquez, I’ve had the opportunity to attend several seminars with Dan Inosanto. I was looking at his Inosanto Academy website and saw this poem he wrote, and I thought I’d share it with you. -Steve Doss

A Poem by Dan Inosanto

“We are all climbing different paths through the mountain of life, and we have all experienced much hardship and strife.

There are many paths through the mountain of life, and some climbs can be felt like the point of a knife.

Some paths are short and others are long, who can say which path is right or wrong?

The beauty of truth is that each path has its own song, and if you listen closely you will find where you belong.

So climb your own path true and strong, but respect all other truths for your way for them could be wrong.”

-Dan Inosanto
