The Secret of Karate
December is here and 2011 is rapidly coming to an end. With the seminars here in Christchurch on the 17th & 18th (http://andrebertel.blogspot.com/2011/11/2011-christchurch-new-zealand-technical.html), a grading, and the annual beach training, it will be a great month of traditional karate-do.
The SECRET of good karate is found in quality practice/training. One's technique, application, and body mirrors this. Accessing high-level instruction is therefore paramount in karate. Our technique must "speak for us" before any discussion on karate begins. Otherwise valuable practice time is wasted.
THEREFORE, THE SECRET OF KARATE IS TO SHUT UP & TRAIN! There is time to talk after practice when the body is exhausted.
