Isshin-Ryu Karate Nails

My father is practicing Isshinryu Karate since he was 15 years old and he was a teacher for a long time. So this are a tribute to my dad and to his passion. The symbol is The flying dragon that is a Japanese symbol of wisdom and knowledge, and is known to rise from the troubled waters of life to the heavens from the knowledge and wisdom that an individual has gained. Thus the same as a student should in Isshin-Ryu Karate. The dragon is also the symbol of Master Tatsuo Shimabuku, as the name Tatsuo means "Dragon Boy".
