A New Challenge

In my last blog post, I told you about writing to the Kojokan sensei about learning bo at their school. Well, I got a reply today.

He remembered me ("I remember you well, since you initially became interested in martial arts training after watching one of our shows," he said) and he encouraged me to come down to the dojo and try out a class. Bo classes are Saturday afternoons.

His suggestion is that I begin with some lessons this summer, and come when I can during the year to continue my practice. "To be truly proficient with a weapon requires regular training, becoming one with a weapon will not happen on an infrequent basis" he said. I agree.

To me this offer sounds perfect. I was thrilled that he was willing to take on a student from another school. I will let Master Hughes know about this--my guess is that he'll encourage me to try this new challenge.

Kundo is a great art. In past times the one who mastered the sword ruled the land. I enjoyed reading your blog. thanks, Kenneth Gibbons LLC
