So for the next two weeks the Aikido club I am in has asked all the students to journal every night - our health and reflection and impression of the day's lesson. Today they gave another question that I have been trying to translate and nothing quite comes out right enough to make sense to me so I am hoping someone here can translate so I am able to write this for tomorrow.

Here is the question:

[merihari wo tsuke,sei ippai gasshuku ni...]
「メリハリをつけ精一杯合宿に」

Can anyone help? :confused:

Hello Alec,

The following questions might help people who have never experienced a Japanese student gasshuku to form an image of what is in store for you.

When you train with the club, is training generally a noisy affair, with everyone shouting their heads off, or do you train in silence? If the former, which I suspect is the case, why would you think they do that? In addition, does the club have regular ミーチング? If so, what is generally talked about?

Best wishes,

PAG

I think it is asking whether or not you are living/training seriously as a class.
