Debbie - Yuri san and Takuma's visiting - 2009 03 09

Debbie’s Reflections from training on Tuesday evening 31th March 2009 I really enjoyed training last night and thought I would flick you an email to let you know my thoughts. It was neat because; - Takuma and Yuri brought a refreshing look to our Waikato Kendo Group. Refreshing because they blended in very well despite their obvious language barriers and newness. I realised that we truly do have a diverse bunch of Kendoists and that there is real depth of culture within in. Wow!. Takuma and Yuri were both very passionate about Kendo and I admired that.

As a SENIOR kendoka (not meaning Sempai, I mean OLDER person) I can appreciate life long pursuits, I should have started my kendo 40 years ago. Never mind Sensei it's no use crying over what never was, but to appreciate what we have at present. As we get older and go through life I'm finding it's the journey that's important, more than the destination . By the way, I am greatly enjoying my kendo!!!! I think finally after 2 years I am starting to understand things a bit more now, especially after giving new kohai the WRONG advice:( how embarrasing I don't think Marleen Sensei was very happy. Anyway my friend it's good Sensei Marleen and joyce are going to Taiwan to be reunited wi
