They are the hands of peace, when nessecary the hands of war. The knowledge I have gained through my training is for the defense of myself, my loved ones, my country, and those deserving. To use this knowledge wrongly is my shame. To use this knowledge properly is my honor. My left hand is the hand of peace and is open in friendship. My right is my clenched fist of war. Together they represent my martial ways and my very life.
