Day 939: But I am not in charge, it's not my table!



Sensei, brush & ink







I was just FB messaging back and forth to senior black belt …




Dean, in Kansas, where it's 36 degrees as we messaged.
I promised not to mention our temperature here in SoCal.




It is his birthday and so I wanted to wish him well.
We got to talking about this busy week and weekend ahead.
He wished us well, and the conversation turned to …
Demura Sensei, as we both hoped he could fit in some rest.




I mentioned that I think Demura Sensei is never happier 
than when he is with his many students and visitors.
I added that I think he needs more rest time to balance it out.
Dean replied, 
Lots of luck with that till it's over and then lots of luck."

And I concluded …"but, I am not in charge, not my table. 

Oh, I think I have tomorrow's blog … "









Thursday evening was advanced black belt kata training.

Due to limited space, divided into three seminars.

Adult Sho-Dan level, Ni-Dan 



36 ni-dans (no picture available of sho-dan group)


and San-Dan and higher.




56 san-dans and higher


Our hombu dojo is a tiny, humble building ...









but steeped in tradition and love for Karate-do.









Filled to capacity by eager students, thrilled to be

a part of it all, and to learn from Demura Sensei.
