1. Sempai

In japanese traditional karate, "sempai" is a term used to refer to an advanced karate learner/student, but not yet a master (sensei). The main idea behind this short piano piece is that you never stop learning whatever you need to learn. A simple piano idea, theme or melodic phrase can change and evolve even within its apparent simplicity. An important lesson to remember here though, is you should avoid believing you know everything, but still keep on going with a sempai attitude -and spirit- in everything you do.
