Something Sam sensei said tonight really stuck with me: "Kendo is not work, it's fun." Kendo is not only fun, but its also a skill and a way of life. We practice it just like any other skill such as running and painting by hours practice and repetition. The interesting thing is that Kendo, more strongly than any other skill I've acquired, shapes and moulds your character, making it also a way of life.
To become good at any skill you must have mastery over the basics, and the only way to get that is through practice. I am still struggling with the basics so my goal is to train hard at every practice so I can master the basics while it influences my life for the better.
