Thought For The Week


Thought for the Week (July 8th, 2002)

From Sensei Aguon
Downtown Karate Dojo
, Honolulu,Hawaii

-------------------------------------------------------------- 

"When training Karate, just knowing how to do a certain technique is not
enough...learn to apply.

When studying Karate, just having the will to do a technique is not
enough...learn to do."

This is a great way to think when training. We have so many tools and ways to
train in Karate...Don't be just a "textbook" practitioner. Work with a
partner, Bunkai, practice kata at all various speeds, change the count,
Yakusoku Kumite. Have confidence that you can do any move that you have been
taught. Do the move and let it become a part of you and you a part of the
move.
