Learning

Onegai-shimasu Hanshi, Kyoshi and Fellow Deshi

This past weekend I had the privilege of attending our Ueshiro Shorin Ryu
Florida Karate Weekend. The Friday evening class was held at the Ueshiro
Viera Dojo and conducted by Kyoshi David Baker.

At the outset of the class Kyoshi Baker provided instruction on the proper
technique for bowing. Kyoshi demonstrated the bow and then he counted
numerous times as we repeated the bow as instructed.

At that point Hanshi emphasized that the best way to learn something is
through

(a) repetition, repetition and more repetition, and

(b) instructing someone else.

We should all strive to apply this guidance both inside and outside the
dojo over the years to come.
