    training hall on Manhattan s Upper West Side Mr Mori teaches a karate as classically Japanese as anything found east of Okinawa Sweating for an hour or so under the tutelage of Mr Mori who holds a stratospheric eighth degree black belt rank is like visiting Japan without having to buy an airline ticket Before each class lawyers police officers and teachers fall to their knees to mop the floor with damp rags The commands are given in Japanese Classes begin and end with meditaion and ceremonial bows A late arrival must kneel awaiting Mr Mori s eventual invitation to join the class And black belts who perform sloppily may feel the chastening sting of Mr Mori s shinai a swordlike bamboo stick on the offending foot or arm For Mr Mori karate is not about mayhem but about balance focus and proper breathing Karate s roots he said lie in the same Japanese traditions as kendo the art of sword fighting or ikebana the art of flower arranging This is the philosophy of karate Mr Mori said It stresses manners sincerity modesty and courage truthfulness and respect I do not believe you will find these in all other sports
