I’m back! It’s been a very long, long week. Proudly and happily, I survived many long days at the Karate Honbu (Headquarters) Dojo. I tested along with many other people from Italy, South Africa, England, New Zealand and the US. I’m still bruised from fights but overall I’m fine – not in pain anymore 🙂 While in NY, I ate a lot because I needed to be strong, and naturally, I gained some weight. I will take a next few days to recover and come up with some new challenging workouts. Here is a picture from New York with the Grandmaster, Kaicho Nakamura and Nidaime.
