Re: Changes: Into the second decade
That's amazing dear P.
It seems to me you managed to blend quite well with that 'storm'. That's the least one could expect from a more than two decade practitioner.
You said it all -- seeing and practice new stuff such as having a new teacher and learning other stuff related to the martial arts truly is the secret for the martial artist and if one is passionate for budo, for situations like the you were involved in.
Congratulations for that outcome!
