Breathing

Breathing is a key aspect of training (as it is of human life
itself). We need to keep breathing properly to train to our maximum
potential. We never hold our breath on the deck. In fact, we keep our
mouths
slightly open as a reminder to breathe continuously. When we start to “lose
our breath,” we need to slow our breathing down to regain our strength and
mental
focus.

Keep breathing. Keep training.

Domo arigato gozaimasu to all,
