Hello everyone,

This is an article that I originally wrote for Mr. Kruczek's OKI Blog website that I have since fleshed out and reworded in order to better clarify my ideas. I understand that, as a mudansha who has only been training for 6 years, I am nowhere near a point in my life and training where I understand everything about the art that I practice. This is merely my own personal philosophy on martial arts training, so I don't want anyone to feel as though I am preaching to the choir for the sake of hearing my own voice/reading my own words, or explaining something that I have no right to explain. This is how I currently envision training when I think about it, and I am curious to hear what others with more experience have to say about my thought process and personal philosophy. Thanks for checking it out!
