I have to say from all the Mugen Karate exhibitions that I have been to, this one has to be the most exciting and thrilling one so far. There were so many wonderful performances from all ages and levels. I am sure it made all parents and friends very proud and I am sure it would be something to talked about for a long time ahead.
There were a lot of great moment during this day, but for me, the one that moved me the most was the pure trying aspect. People not being able to break planks of wood the first time, then seeing them trying and trying over and over again with all the loud support from everyone was the most touching thing. It really shows how strong the community is in helping and supporting each other. No matter where you come from, how old you are, or even how unskilled you think you are, the strongest aspect of it all is the support and friendship you get from this small yet caring community.
I want to say thank you as always to Yamaguchi-sensei for organizing a memorable day for all of us. Thank you to Shidax for sponsoring the whole event and also thank you all the helpers to made it just that much more special.
