Workouts are every day, however today I returned to regular intensity training. Every year, around the New Year, I have a very relaxed period of “exercise” for a few days. This is a tradition inherited from Asai Tetsuhiko Sensei. I am also using this time to set increased targets for the new year and also to think about the previous year to step up my new efforts.
I want to take this opportunity to thank all the thousands of karatekas from around the world who have sent me kind messages through various media formats. I’m sorry I can’t answer them all, but I’ve read them all and I’m deeply grateful for that.
I wish you all good health, happiness, prosperity and great training: in the fourth year of REIWA.
忍 忍 – レ ン ド レ
