West River Mission Statement

To edify, encourage, and make evident to our students that accomplishment is the journey of life, not the destination.

Every situation has a positive aspect; it is our task to find it. Approach each obstacle with focus, determination, perseverance and an optimistic attitude. Achieve this, and success will be yours.

- Sensei Kenny Lim

West River Karate's 10 Steps To Competition Success

1. Never underestimate your opponent.
2. Work on your weakness until they become your strengths.
3. Remember that a great effort is usually the result of a great attitude.
4. Dedicate yourself to a mighty purpose.
5. Win with humility, lose with grace.
6. Do not ask to be deprived of attention and discipline - these are the tools that shape success.
7. Work to improve your moral and spiritual strengths as well as your physical ones.
8. Remember, when you're not working to improve, your competition is.
9. Do what has to be done, when is has to be done, and as well as it can be done.
10. Talent is God-given - Be humble! Fame is man-given - Be Thankful! Conceit is self-given- Be careful!
- H. Jackson Brown, Jr. "A Hero in Every Heart"
