Just wanted to say thanks
« on: April 03, 2007, 11:08:15 PM »

Hey, Just wanted to say thankyou to shihan and everyone in the OKA who have helped me out since i started in october. I'v found that karate seems to fill a void and i love the way it makes me feel, physically and pshycologically. I feel a lot fitter and happier as i can let all my stress out at the dojo. thanks for everything everyone its an honour to be able to train with all of you, Julia ;D

Your post prompted me to write something positive about the OKA. I joined for the same reasons as you and Chris and similarly have found that I have massively benefitted from Goju-Ryu. I have become fitter than I have ever been. This has given me greater confidence and interestingly, my other sporting pursuits have benefitted. By better understanding body mechanics I have become a stronger hockey player. Specifically it is things such as stances, and the understanding of generating force that have helped my sporting ability. I am very pleased that I came across the OKA by chance when searching for a martial arts club. This now even provides me with something positive when my hockey playing days will be over.
