Woow, just noticed it has been several years since my last entry. Well, I never stopped training. Whether I learned something or no remains to be seen.

So much has changed.
My knees are still rotten and doing suwari waza is not going to happen. I know that now, I understand it and believe me that is a big change.
Having moved to another part of the Netherlands I now train with different people. That which is fun at times, but at some times also a bit frustrating. Everyone has his own pace in training and that is fine.

Those whom I considered to be important teachers for me are now dead, which makes training sometimes feel as a burden. How am I to keep the spark alive when half the time I don't know what I am doing. How am I to honor the time and effort they put into making their knowledge and experience sink into my thick skull?

One thing I have learned is that nothing can take the place of persistence.

Good to see you back, and glad you are still training. I think the best way to honor the time and effort a teacher invested in you would be to keep training. And I'm sorry for your loss.
