Re: Atemi focus and intensity

Yes, Ledyard Sensei is always insightful and inspiring. i had had the pleasure of enjoying his training and conversation several times.

Training in atemi, IMHO, a must if we are to keep this art alive. Most of the people I train with have previous martial art experience, so we pretty well bash away. We do take the time to show correct punching, some more karate style, others of us more boxing. In showing the technique, we also show the correct form of attack. Many of us also will correct students while training. They all seem to appreciate it.

We do not rise to the level of our expectations, but fall to the level of our training. Train well. KWATZ!
