Transcript taught everything from karate to basic punches and kicks to self- defense against an armed attacker; however, Mansuyr stressed that the main objective of the class was to develop self-confidence and mental awareness. The members of Shotoka sat on the floor and participated in discussion training for the first 15 minutes of class. "We want to encourage people to get involved so we sit and discuss social problems and what's going on in people's lives," Mansuyr said. Next, the members meditated, Mansuyr said. This was an important step because it helped self-control. "When studying the martial arts, people have to develop mental control as well as physical control. They can't do (karate) with just one," Mansuyr said. Mansuyr had been training in karate for 30 years. He began taking lessons when he was a young boy living in Indonesia. "When I was six or seven, I was small and shy and some neighborhood bullies would start fights with me. I would come home crying so my father put me in karate school and since then I've had no fights. Karate school gave me confidence and self-esteem. That's what I want to pass to others," Mansuyr said. People of all ages, races and religions were members of Shotokan, Mansuyr, making the group more like a family. "Karate has improved my way of life and quality of life both spiritually and physically in the 12 years in the 12 years I've been a member," Bachman said. Student and faculty joined by participating in the lessons. People wore loose, com fortable clothes. If they liked, they could order a dogi, a karate uniform, through the class, said Curtis Link, a graduate student and two year member of Shotokan. The class was divided into groups based on ability. Beginners started with a white belt and worked they way through six levels to acquire the highest honor in karate, the black belt. Students were expected to obey certain etiquette and follow the five basic principles of karate: honesty, integrity, manners, self-defense and self-control. Through karate, people developed mental strength that helped enforce a positive attitude and helped managed stress, Mansuyr said. -Kim Copelin Karate/Debate 211
