Hanshi’s Note July 1, 2016

It is so important, especially now, to develop an inner focus to deal with the outer world. In the dojo we have many symbols to assist in the process starting with the sword of purification, the mirror of bravery and wisdom, and the crystal of enlightenment. The idea through the training is to develop an alignment and maintain a positive attitude. Only the gentle are ever really strong; if one really wants to live at all, we have to put our convictions into action. In all human affairs there are efforts and there are results – strength of effort will impact the strength of results. Clear out a corner of your mind so creativity and intuition come in. All your effort won’t matter unless you are inspired; art does not have to be pretty, just meaningful. Price of effort in training is what you pay; value is what you get. Taking on the challenge of the grading once met adds meaning and value to one’s self and life. The real man or woman smiles when facing trouble, gathers strength from distress, and grows brave by reflection. Underlying budo, bushido, and the bubishi is the core concept of bravery especially when facing the truth about one’s self. Life shrinks or expands according to one’s courage and bravery. The way is in training.

Hanshi’s Note – June 2016

It’s important to remember that one’s success is measured from where one starts and everyone’s challenges are personal to them; therefore, they should not be judged by anyone else who does not understand what that individual has had to overcome in their training especially when it comes to children in gradings. A grading rewards progress and that progress is individual, students are never compared. All frustration comes from comparison. Parents should never compare their children to others in a grading as you do not know the background of someone else’s child. Parents who train and have their children training never criticize others’ children because they know how hard a grading is in the first place. People react differently to pressure situations, and until one gets in the water to really know, they should not comment. As the saying goes: “do not judge lest thee be judged.”

The grading is an assessment not a judgemental process that allows students to find themselves within the process and this can sometimes take years. Yet many want their 3 and 4 year olds to act like they are 10; it is unrealistic to expect such results, children need time to experience and learn in micro steps. In time, if allowed, amazing things happen so patience and tolerance are necessary along with trust in the process.
