Over 600 years ago, an Italian knight and master-at-arms chose these four words (in Latin:Fortitudio, Celeritas, Prudentita and Audatia) to symbolize the qualities of the perfect warrior. These same words exemplify the virtues we seek to foster and develop in the Forteza family.
When you see these words, remember that they are a call to action from across the gulf of centuries, challenging us to be more, do more and seek more. They are a reminder that the study and practice of the martial arts, and the quest to improve our bodies and minds are not just exercise, but rather a tool for building character and personal discipline – qualities that we believe can be of benefit to the modern world as much as they were for the ancient one.
