60 and still has what it takes.

Training in martial arts is an amazing journey, and people train for many different reasons, some because they want a break from their work/school, some to meet other people, many just want to sweat a little, learn a little self-defense, be a little smarter, or simply just have a good time.   To me it is all about personal growth, development and learning.

I always feel that I leave the dojo with something new every time I train. I attribute this to good teachers who offer constructive comments which help me improve and feel good. And when you feel good, you do good.

I was a bit older when I started training, and I wasn’t sure whether I would be able to learn new things, or be able to ‘keep up’ and do some of the things that younger students do.  Once I actually started training, all of the senior grades welcomed me with open arms and helped me develop my techniques and skills.

From the time I started my training, I have been able to work and develop at my own pace, and I feel safe and supported at all times. I am so thankful that I had the courage to step inside the Dojo and begin my training.

When I help other students with their training, I think about how I feel when I get positive feedback, and keep this in mind when I share what I have learnt with them.

If I am instructing or explaining a technique to another student, I always demonstrate what I am doing, and use proper technique.  I lead by example.

I adapt my teaching style to suit the way they learn.  Not only does this help them, but it allows me to further develop my skills and techniques.

Although I don’t teach any regular classes at the moment, I help out around the Dojo as needed, and am only too happy to assist my fellow students develop their martial art skills, and I am grateful to be able to play a part in their personal journey.

I encourage anyone who is curious about martial arts and Shiryodo Karate to come along and give it a go.  You may be surprised at the results…
