"Quotes From Master Donald Bohan's Dojo"


"Sensei Bohan keep what he called "Words Of Wisdom" written on an old piece of a blackboard.  He would change up the quote about every six months or so and at each change of quotes he would then lecture the students as to the meaning of each new quote and explain how it applied to life itself. "  Wayne Wayland
