I managed to get time to go and shoot the Shida-juku class on Tuesday nights and lucky for me it was the day for students to get their new belts. It was a great to experience this night. The Shida-juku team work hard and play hard. You could feel the fighting spirit within all members and with the whole team. I said to Yamaguchi-sensei that night it doesn't matter now young or old you are, the true spirit of fighting lives within you forever until you die. You can truly see why these men are successful in and outside the dojo!
