Renshusei from Australia: Don Walker (Part Two): YouTube Video

Below is a brief YouTube video from Don Sensei’s recent training here in Oita. As opposed to showing the ‘learning processes’ this video is primarily for Don ‘to provide subtle and useful cues (from the lessons)’.

In sum, and irrespective of not being ‘a spring chicken’, I’m very grateful for Don Sensei's intense focus throughout his time here as a renshusei; in particular, his highly pragmatic questions; ‘seeking of effectiveness and efficiency over aesthetics’ (budo/bujutsu as opposed to ‘sports’); and last but not least, the wonderful camaraderie.
