Last year I finally started training again in Zen Do Kai after a decade or so of procrastination and the illusion of having other priorities.

Coming back in after some decades of not training has been a challenge both mentally and physically and I expect this will only escalate as I work very, very slowly towards getting back to where I was when I stopped training, then on to my second dan and beyond. It’s also been really inspiring and feels a bit like “coming home” to my ZDK family, even if in a different place and time.

Anyhow, tonight training recommences after the christmas break and I’m channeling my past self in preparation. Much gratitude and respect to Sensei Brad Kyme-Hobson who literally changed my life in the 80s and to Sensei Mat Woolley who has now taken me under his wing.
