Gekisai Ichi

Gekisai Ichi

Yesterday I had a sore throat. I seem to have a cold. So, early in this morning I went to my "outdoor dojo" and practiced Sanchin and Tensho. I believe they can cure a cold.

クルルンファー Kururunfa
A video clip of Kata "Kururunfa" performed by San Zinsoo. Many people think Tai Chi (= taijiquan) exercise is beneficial for health promotion. I think Kata of Gojuryu is also useful for the same purpose, if we practice it correctly in a relaxed way. In that way, we can enjoy practicing karate even if we get older. I am now 55 years old.
