Last weekend I was teaching the annual international traditional karate seminar in Dojo Stara Wies, Poland.
I had great time; there is nothing more inspiring than when people have great spirit and genuine quest for knowledge.
There were over 250 participants from Poland, Czech Republic, Russia, England, Lithuania and maybe I forgot some.
We worked on fundamentals such as posture, and stance, body dynamics, timing of technique, and of course Kime and how to make Todome.
Than we worked on Kata Sochin, as a mean to understand the fundamentals and relationships to applications.
Sochin kata has many subtle technical details, but also requires certain feeling and energy projection.
We spend a lot of time working on set up strategies and the subtleties involved.
Stara Wiez Dojo is an inspiring place thanks to the vision of Vodek and collaboration of all Polish karate people.
The Polish people show us what can be done when people work as a team, and it is great to see that everyone who comes to camp aside from being passionate about karate also love to be with each other, like a big karate family.
