Poland Gasshuku with Sensei Linda Marchant

The first weekend of March was marked by training with Sensei Linda Marchant, who flew to Wroclaw at our invitation, accompanied by two students from her Dojo, Ciara and Emily. Training began with individual lessons with Sensei Adam where Sensei Linda gave relevant information on the Kata’s Sesan & Suparimpei.

Saturday and Sunday were joint training also rich in Kata and Kumite preparation so that each session offered something for everyone. In addition to the hard training Sensei Linda gave also gave us a bit of poetry that fits perfectly with the philosophy of Karate:

Training:

    First A man in Budo training is in Budo
    Second Strength comes from health
    Third Speed ​​comes from effort
    Fourth Technique comes from experience
    Fifth Will power comes from faith
    Sixth Serenity comes from old knowledge
    Seventh Progress comes from new knowledge

Hard & Soft

    Do not meet hard with hard or soft with soft
    There is no result and it is Meaningless
    Catch the stone flung with a cloth
    Pin the wind fluttered cloth with a stone

  1. A Budo man in training is in Budo
  2. Strength comes from health
  3. Speed comes from effort
  4. Technique comes from experience
  5. Will power comes from faith
  6. Serenity comes from old knowledge
  7. Progress comes from new knowledge
