Technique of the Week (December 2nd, 2007)

From Sensei David Tamir

Ueshiro Suntree-Viera Dojo
--------------------------------------------------------------

Building warrior spirit in our karate training involves 4 corner stones:

(1) Gan - Eye Contact, Concentration

(2) Soku - Footwork, Balance

(3) Tanden - Courage, No Fear Concept

(4) Riki - Strength, Power

These four ancient keys are yours to have in Hanshi Scaglione's "Green Book" Building Warrior Spirit.

During your upcoming holidays in December, treat yourself to a refreshing read of this important book and the in-depth exploration of these principles; and then bring them to life on the deck of your dojo.

Domo arigato gozaimasu,
