A fire burns within every fighter; a chance to be the very best in their craft. It fuels the ambition that makes a champion, one who conquers all fears of defeat. Their every step taken comes from a warrior's state of mind. 

Tradition that has paved the way for a culture respected,

You cannot dream yourself into a character, you must hammer and forge yourself into one. Every successful person did what no one else was willing to do.
