ROUND 3. FIGHT!
So tonight will be my 3rd session back in the dojo and I can feel the benefits already of this amazing martial art. When people think of Karate they just assume you learn how to kick and punch.... And I don't blame them. I was the same. It is only when you have practiced for some time that the bigger picture opens up. As a Karateka you are encouraged to question your spirit, your morals, your fears everything. It is known as BUDO or the self development aspect of the art and this is what truly drew me towards learning Shotokan Karate. This has extended outside of the dojo so I now question all the time what I am doing and why I am doing.
The moral of the story is whatever you do remember to always see the bigger picture, Question and think about your own Self Development!
Have a great day everyone!
