I am impressed....

The clarity of Richard Amos senseis teaching always impress me. The way everything he does makes logical sense and the way anyone that pays attention can improve their karate in a short time, is amazing. Thank you, sensei.

For me the most poignant point he made this time was: Whats going on in the middle of a technique is way more important than what it looks like after its done. (He of course used way bigger words to explain this....hihi) This concept will definatly pop up in my teachings in the weeks and months to come.

Furthermore im very pleased with having Oddny and Fjølnir (9th kyus) show up this weekend. Too many lowergrades shy away from events like this, and therefore miss out on the most important training available. Others that deserve a mention would be Gusta, Disa, Villi and Edda for doing absolutely all the classes, Åsas mom for knitting the fabulous sweater, Halli for driving sensei and me around when the snow was getting too angry for my cute little car and everyone else that showed up making our gashuko a success.

Quality-wise its definatly not like a cottonbelt, but i have to admit that i like the look...... hihi.

This belt is a 1.5 years old and i have used it for about half of the karate that i have been up to in that time. Seems that its not gonna last forever, huh....
