Kyoshi's Technique of the Week

November 11th 2012

From Sensei Emiliano Mazlen, Yon-Dan

Shihan, Boston Chinatown Ueshiro Shorin-Ryu Karate Club



Moving and Breathing Quietly


Onegai-shimasu Hanshi, Kyoshi, Sensei, Shihan and Fellow Deshi,

In executing our techniques, we should move (and breathe) quietly, like a tiger.
Stepping loudly is often the product of stepping high, which is generally incorrect.
Similarly, breathing loudly is often a sign of having lost control over one’s breath,
risking/betraying fatigue and weakness.

Keep moving forward . . . quietly . . .

Domo arigato gozaimasu to all.

Emiliano Mazlen
