Thank you to Yamaguchi-sensei who gave a great introduction lesson to all the adults and children. To be able to practice and communicate so closely made it a really enjoyable time.
Thank you to Shida Shacho (Shidax) who came to open the event with a very emotional and supportive speech.
Thank you everyone for coming and contributing in today's charity karate event. You make a difference so please keep fighting for Japan!
For the first time I started speaking English in the Dojo. It's quite an odd feeling to be speaking my native language there when for the past one and a half years I have been using only Japanese. Others are taken off guard by it but I think it's really needed. We need to adapt in our lives to all challenges and becoming complacent with anything is just taking the easy road. So next time I see you at practice don't be scared to try out a few English moves on me. It will hurt more not trying..
