Sensei Alvin is now a Machida Karate Affiliate Instructor
Its been too long since I've been in the presence of someone who lives Budo. After training with Sensei Chinzo and Sensei Lyoto, the patriarch of the Machida family honored us with a special lecture on the history of Machida Karate and the importance of Budo Culture.
I was reminded of why I began my study of Karate over twenty years go. After a long journey through many other Martial Arts (that I will continue to train in) I feel at home again. This is what I want to share with my students. Its not the fighting or the technique that makes Karate. Its how you train and how you live your life.
Budo is living skillfully and always ready for anything that comes your way.
