10.5 hours of training really did a number on the back of my thighs..... Sooooo worth it, though. If Pat ever is anywhere near where you are, go there and practice. His insights and innovative approaches to bunkaipractice and keriwaza will keep me trying hard for a long time.

I am inspired for a long time now. Gashukos really is one of the best tools to stay excited bout your karate, it keeps it fresh, gives you more understanding and something to strive for in the months to come.

If you missed it this time, make a real effort to be there for the next one and the next one and so on. If you do not, you will miss out on the big benefits of karate and then its just a matter of time before you quit alltogether. (And we cant have that)

People from Reykjavík and Kópavogi should easily be able 2 go 2 some classes in the gashukos!! Not a long drive ;-)!! Even though people r happy with their teachers its good 4 everybody 2 get their asses moved in class with people like Pat that is GREAT. There is a reason 4 why we have foreign people over here 2 teach and its not just 2 hear different language!!
