Willow Shotokan Karate
At all times accept life as the Willow tree accepts the wind. Rather than fight the inevitable by being immovable like the Oak tree, the Willow will bend, not suffering any hardships, whereas the Oak will fight and fight and in the end be destroyed by its own stubbornness. Tomorrow after the wind has calmed, the Willow will bounce back to its original straightness, whereas the Oak will have the unhealable scars of the day before.
