Presentation in Monaco
Sensei Sato the Chief Instructor of Monaco presented Sensei Rod with a wonderful piece of Japanese calligraphy at the end of a recent European course. The calligraphy was to honour the effort and work that Rod has put into karate over the years. The calligraphy created by Sensei Sato’s wife, describes karate, which like hot water, always needs heat to keep it on the boil. Look up the precepts of Karate by Master Gichin Funakoshi for a fuller understanding of the deeper meaning behind these words.
