Just watched a bare-knuckle karate championship

I just saw a competition from Fukuoka Japan. It was….inspiring. Even those who did not win their matches showed great spirit, technique and honor. It made me think of the best days of martial arts in this country. The days before little ninja programs, or making classes “fun” because kids needed to be entertained. Just focused, intense training that saved lives, and improved esteem. I am off to train my friends. Until next time!
