1000 Kirikaeshi

On wed 8th August 2012, Peter, MJ and Bonnie did 1000 kirikaeshi. It was great to see members of our dojo demonstrate courage, determination and spirit.
 
As I have said before, it is very easy to take the ‘easy way’ in life. But it takes courage to decide to try something that will push us to our limits both physically and mentally. By deciding to do the 1000 kirikaeshi, Peter, Mj and Bonnie demonstrated the courage
that they had, and in doing so will make them stronger.
 
 
For the members of the dojo who watched them, I hope that it will give them inspiration to challenge themselves. Every challenge big or small means that we have taken and accepted the next step towards improving.
 
I feel that the spirit within the dojo over the last few months has changed in a good way. I feel there is more of a ‘team’ atmosphere and a willingness to help each other.
This is a very good thing. It was great to see this on wed, when so many were supporting Peter, MJ and Bonnie.
 
Well done to the three of you! Lets try together to challenge ourselves and become strong together in both mind and body.
Lets hope that many more of the members are inspired and accept challenges that will help build a strong spirit.
Well done again!!

いい言葉

July 5, 2012

實力之不同乃努力之差別,
實績之不同乃責任感之差別,
人格之不同乃辛勤之差別,
判斷力之不同乃情報之差別。

嚴肅認真者得到智慧,
半途而廢者就是愚痴,
不負責任者滿是借口。

認真地去做,大至都會成功,
認真地去做,什麼事都有趣,
認真地在做,誰都會來幫助。

(Translated by 水徳)

 

Difference of ability is the difference of effort spent
Difference of result is the difference of sense of responsibility
Difference of personality is the difference of hardship
Difference of judgment is the difference of information

Seriousness gives wisdom
Lackadaisical attitude results in grumbling
Irresponsible person always is full of excuse

Being serious, will succeed in most of the cases
Being serious, anything is enjoyable
Being serious, everybody would give you a hand

(Translated by 水徳、Gordon)

日本からお便り

December 6, 2011

精進館  岸川先生、皆様 ご無沙汰しております。

岸川先生、みなさん、元気でお過ごしのことと思います。

私も帰国して早10ヶ月が過ぎました。

日本では朝晩少し涼しくなりましが、日中は秋らしい素晴らしい晴​天が続いています。

会社の方は事業再編でバタバタしている状態ですが、剣道の方は稽​古の回数は減ったものの なんとか継続しており、先月の昇段審査で念願の五段に合格するこ​とができました。

これも岸川先生はじめ皆様にご指導頂いたお陰と深く感謝しており​ます。

ただ、防具を着けて稽古すればいいと思っていたところがありまし​たが理論的に、 打突のタイミングや呼吸、心構えなどいろいろな面で解りやすくご​指導頂けこと またいろいろな年代の方と一緒に剣道ができたことや、同じ年代のMatur​e team の方々と稽古できたこと励みになりました。皆様に改めて感謝申し​上げます。

今回の審査では80歳の方が、五段に合格されました。その体力、​精神力に圧倒させられ ました。80歳で剣道ができること本当に素晴らしいですね。

この​方に比べたら まだまだ我々は若いです。 これからも、少しずつでも自分に合った剣道を求められたらと思い​ます。 (残念ながら居合の方は帰国以来 稽古できておりません。) 最後に、皆様のご健勝と精進館のますます発展、ご活躍をお祈り致​します。

箕浦

P.S Tommy-san、Albert-san Sorry​ for no English.
