Karate Discovery – the Student

Karate enlightenment comes as a personal and inner revelation. Throughout your training, guided by your sensei and senpais, one follows a path but walks that path somehow alone.

Explanations are given, descriptions and demostrations are delivered as you keep training, copying and attempting, to the best of your ever growing abilities, the techniques shown to you. No one can train for you and, consequently, no one can feel for you. Despite all the guidance, it is when you feel the technique that the explanations start makes sense.  They become revelations.

It is a processes of interiorisation only achieved via constant training. Sometimes those feelings come and go like the flashbacks of a dream until they become permanent.

Once you feel karate is there to stay.
