Thought For The Week

Thought for the Week (February 5th, 2001)
Sensei Michael Mackay
Midtown Karate Dojo- New York City


"Winter Training"

Patient winter sun
shines through sweat-streaked ice daggers
growing drip by drip.

Hints for the poetically impaired:
"Sun" - sensei and shinden
"ice daggers" (icicles) - deshi
"drip" - a single repetition of kata

Best of luck to all testing, and to those with the greater task of lending support.

Arigato Gozaimasu,
Michael Mackay, Yon-Dan,
