Surrender to the ancient Karate discipline of Miyagi-Do. It’s a sacred path of focus and enlightenment. Starting the journey Miyagi-Do immediately permeates with the aroma of a forest outside a small village in Okinawa. Sweet musty spice combines with hints of minty cream and lemon. The sugary sweetness blossoms as you break open the bud, flowers revealing themselves to you. And when you break it down, the resin lingers on your finger tips, a pleasant tactile impression of mint and pine. You are learning the lessons of Miyagi-do-Karate. The floral notes expand the deeper you explore, the deeper you breathe. Though it's a path of peace and focus, it strikes first and strikes hard with no mercy leaving you dazed and confused as if you just got jumped by 6 enemies dressed in skeleton costumes. You have begun to understand Mr. Miyagi’s teachings, and now the story becomes your own and you must look eye, always look eye.
