Why I've always come back to GoJu Ryu Karate!
« on: September 26, 2006, 04:01:36 PM »

Hello all,

It's not my first time back at the dojo as I'm sure Shihan has said many times in class, because it's actually my 3rd time back and I am determined to stick it through and Succeed in achieving and becoming a blackbelt!

It's not always easy to start again from scratch but I have done it twice before and this time I have come further along in my grades..

I guess the only real reason why I've always come back to this form of martial arts is because of Shihan Paul and the way he teaches , you have alot of instructors out there who will knock your confidence down then feebly build you up so you depend on there approval ! Here its different as there is never a negative input from Shihan and he is always willing to go beyond just teaching, for example he would actually help and give advice on certain things in our diets and health in general !

Its not only the teaching but I have felt comfortable in the why the classes are run , you get more for what you paid and not a half hearted attempt at trying to fill in time!

Also alot of what we learn is logical and makes sense , there's nothing fancy about the teaching it is what it is and no exagurated lies to back things up!

I really don't think that the teaching can be at a higher standard anywhere else, believe me I've been to places like London and it only goes lower or even worse!

I have to say teachers like Sensei Howard, Sensei Mark, Sensei Colin, Sensei Kelvin & Sensei Fraser Long , Shihan can't be going wrong with his teaching as these guys have at some point taught a few lessons and they are at a high standard which is a real credit to the DoJo and Shihan Paul Coleman.

OverAll What Karate has done for me is made me more Confident , Determined, Fitter and more Focused on my future goals !

I can honestly say that there are only 3 teachers in my life that have left a positive impression on me and Shihan Paul is one of them! I hope to learn alot more from him and make the best of what I am taught, as I know it will show through when I become a black belt as that is only the beginning !

Anyway I rest my case , lets hope that we get a fixed abode so that we can help build the DoJo and its students in to a stronger unit of members , it would be great to see more new faces each time and see the DoJo base grow in members & teachers alike!


Take Care All !  xXx

Nax   ;)

Dear Naxus,

That was so complimentary ........... but you'll still have to work hard for your next belt ;D

I'm sure the other dojo senseis have read this too.

THANK YOU!
