10th anniversary! 2023 Komae Festival
I performed a demonstration with my son & student at the festival held in our hometown, Tokyo Komae, and it was a great success!
My son & student were impressed that not only their families and friends, but also many viewers just 2 meters away were able to see happy faces.
My son & student went to enjoy the festival surrounded by family and friends after the demonstration ♪
I did a dedication demonstration to Tama River and God who watches over me in every morning’s practice.
This year, I suffered a lot of injuries, but I was able to continue practicing every day because the sun, the sky, the river, the grass, the trees and the air healed me.
And thank you very much to everyone who always looks at my posts. Your message of support and joy gives me strength.
Arigatou Gozaimas !
What has had a big impact on own life?
For me, it’s an encounter with a Kakkoii Otoko !
The person I admired poured his passion into karate-Do. And he poured that passion into me as well.
I will become such a Kakkoii Otoko !
When Setamatsu Sensei, who was 92 years old, was summoned to heaven six years ago, I almost lost my way, but I didn’t lose my mind. Because Setamatsu Sensei gave me a new encounter. That Senseis is giving me more passion !
There’s no reason why I don’t burn my mind !
This video is a today’s morning class.
After this, I participated in the monthly practice at the General Headquarters Dojo. I’m still excited. Because the practice here was special.
This morning, I had the last riverside training before the wado-ryu National Championship with my son.
Like at the summer training camp, both of us were able to exercise and feel better while breathing clean air.
The most memorable thing for me about the summer training camp I went to at Saitama Seibu Chichibu is the reaction when the children learned the kumite of Wado-ryu, not the competition Kumite.
The figure that they worked on while being surprised and enjoying it remains vivid in my heart.
I believe that the desire to share what I cherish with important people can be conveyed to the other person depending on my own efforts.
I want to keep holding.
It is the love for children, the desire to be involved in their growth, and the passion to master Wado-ryu.
It’s a summer training camp for 3 days and 2 nights from tomorrow.
Everything is ready, and I feel good to receive a new Do-Gi now ♪
I will do my best so that all 30 people, including me, can spend meaningful time in the summer camp training !
It’s this evening’s class from now ♪
