Kigami Biraki has come and gone. The emphasis on this Japanese New Year celebration is one of introspection and goal setting.
This year I will grade for sandan ( 3rd degree black belt )
There. It is in writing. I am committed.
Years of training in other disciplines, injury, apathy and inertia have led to my incredible 19 years as a nidan.
Once this blog has been posted, my comittment will be official and unretractable ( if that is even a word ).
I hope to journal my training, and testing procedures, as well as keep members informed of cirriculum changes, tips from clinics, karate related incidents and more.
Welcome to my barefoot journey.
