忍耐 + 掌握人生
That's the number of days left till the National Championships begins.
That's when I will be showing my best ever kendo on the shiai-jo.
I will be super-charged walking into the shiai-jo.
Keep my spirit up high, think positive, and tonnes of belief in myself - that I can do it.
Training in the past few weeks
Training routine has finally returned to normal - 3 to 4 trainings per week. I have been working on a number of things and I have put a simple list here to remind myself what I will need to work on tonight at training.
Kyoto Taikai / Jpn Golden Week
Woohoo!!! The weekend and night overtime works finally pay off. I accumulated enough time-in-lieu to get leave approval to go to Kyoto during the Japan Golden Week. That's when the 7 and 8 Dan Grading will be held, when the Kyoto Taikai will be on.
Best of all, I can meet my Kendo friends again.
10, and then 13.
