The protagonists for kosen-rufu
do not moan or complain.
They are able to break through

Therein lies our noble philosophy,

One person’s actual proof of victory

To My Friends

Courageous and tenacious actions

Young people who are challenging

break through the walls of cowardice
and write a history of your personal victories!
