April = 30 Years

As we close out March today we will be shifting our focus from Sandan Gi to the four directions.  There are many directions and the kenpo happo (8 laws of the fist) states “The ears listen well in the 8 directions” the translation we use generally says in all directions but if you read the Kanji it says 8 directions.  We will be using turning drills from the kata as a part of this focus.   

 

April is an exciting month for Mrs. Young and Myself as it marks 30 years since we began our journey into Goju Ryu!  We owe a big thank you to all the people who have been a part of that journey.  From The instructors who got us going to those who have kept us moving forward and all the students at any level we have come in contact with through that time.  We would not be where we are without each of you.
