Master Hernaez“In these times of troubles, when focus is on competition, it appears to me that it is vital for Man’s future to encourage everything that can bring harmony and peace. If Nihon Tai Jitsu, the way I designed it, can make its contribution, it will be my best reward and the hope in a life of progress.”
