You all represent the arts now, and like so many before you you’re responsible for them… so uphold then greatly and with honor, strength and passion. Be gentle with your knowledge, but never fault from it. Be brave and always, always keep an open mind and a loyal trusting spirit. Stay true, stay focused and keep on the path… For it is ongoing and beautiful and never ending.

— Sifu & Simo and the entire AMAA staff and family!
