As the length of the day and night is bound to both the movement of the earth and the inclination of the axis of the earth, what we recognize these days regarding the season reminds us that we are truly under the order of the universe. Today we practiced Judo as always. The menu was comprised with both Newaza and Tachiwaza. Since the Sanshodaisen is near, we especially try to concentrate on promoting our morale.
Recently I personally realized that we become true friends by sharing each other's pain. As alumnus Yamagishi remarked, practicing Judo sometimes involves rigor and pain. We stood together and overcame these rigorous training together for the one purpose. This is, I think, we are more than just teammates.
Gathering pieces of puzzle, everyday, we are getting one step closer to the victory.
