A traditional expression in our karate style is ‘geiko, geiko, geiko’ or ‘practice, practice, practice’. Needless to say that is an essential guideline to follow if we want to master our art. Any art. Equally important is the clarity about the underlying principles that we follow during our practice. If these are unclear or incorrect, we will not master the art. Our journey will be less fulfilling and we may get disappointed, frustrated or injured in ways that are not necessary.
From a young age, when I started training judo at 12 and teaching it at 16, I was always interested in the underlying principles and how these principles compare with those of other arts. Other martial arts, but also other healing, yogic or meditative arts, from both East and West. I preferred to train hard & smart above hard only or smart only.
Last year I enjoyed sharing these principles in online session with my current and former students, as well as some guests from abroad. Now the crises and its lock downs seem to continue longer than expected, I have decided to offer these classes to a wider audience through some separate, extra sessions.
The sessions will be organized guerrilla style: unpredictable times and at short notice. It will be posted on Facebook, but if you you want to make sure you don’t miss it, send an email to email@example.com and I’ll put you on a list for these sessions.
