Karate Without Love Is No Good
Oota Hirokata taught and practiced kendō, the Japanese way of the sword, for many decades. In this lovely little video, he summarizes his beliefs about kendō in a way that very much resonates with the approach of our own karate classes. Oota Sensei was 102 when the video was shot. He passed in 2021, at the age of 107.
His life sets an example of life-long practice and learning that we of the Seibukan Karate Dojo seek to emulate.
