“To say that Mr. Ito’s influence on my development as a young man was influential would vastly understate the impact he made on my life. I treasure the time I spent training at his school because he didn’t just teach technique, he taught character. The martial arts were a delivery mechanism to build mental toughness. I pushed myself harder than I knew possible. I applied myself in countless thousands of hours of practice to memorize techniques and katas. ..Mr. Ito instilled in me a love for excellence, the ability to concentrate single-mindedly without giving in to distractions, and to push through the pain of exertion. This ability to focus and persevere were exactly the right mental disciplines that carried me through my entire career up to this date.” - Matthew Wilson
