Qualities of a Champion


     "Imagination is more important than knowledge." -Albert Einstein-


    Creativity is to thinking up new ideas and try new things. We can all be creative. The ancient masters who started Karate were very creatvie individuals that shaped the future of martial arts. They looked at the human body and realized that there were ways to move the human body in a self-defense situation that was very effective, graceful, and everyone could learn. they taught their students, who were also creative people, and those students found new, creative ways to add to the arts. This continued for hundreds of generations, and today, we have Isshinryu.

    Knowledge is important, however creativity is what allows us to do wonderful new things. For example, humans have known that apples are safe to eat for thousads and thousands of years. That is important knowledge to know that something is safe for you to eat. However one day someone used creativity to realize that if they sliced the apple up, mix it with cinnamon and sugar, bake it in a crust, and boom! That creative individual made the first apple pie.


    "I dream of painting, and then I paint my dream."              -Vincent Van Gogh-


    Creativity can also be a tool for solving problems. Inventing pie took creativity, but so would knowing how to use it. Imagine that there is a farmer who has too many apples. She knows that she cannot sell them all in time before they go bad. Instead of trying to just apples, she creates something new - the apple pie - uses all her apples, and sells all the pies.

    Think of the words imagination, and creativity. What words are connecto to "immagination"? Imaginary or imagine, which means something is not real. You can imagine borccole that tastes like ice cream, but that is not real. What words are connected to "creativity", though? Create or creation. A creation is something that is real, and to create something means to make it real. IUf you become a scientist who studies plants, Maybe you could first imagine broccoli that tastes like ice cream, and then creat it!
