My Dojo's 2008 Cold Water Training (I wasn't a member yet)
I went to my Kyokushin Karate class tonight, and had an amazing workout. It’s actually the first time in a long time that I’ve made it to a full class, with all of the stuff that’s been happening lately. Ajima Sensei, one of the best teachers there, came up to me afterwards and asked me what I was doing on Sunday. I told him just doing an English lesson (private lesson) and he wanted to know if I would be interested in doing cold water training. A group of students will go to Oari beach which isn’t very far from here, if you have a car, and practice karate in the icy cold waters of the Pacific Ocean. I answered out loud “I might be able to make it,” but in my head I was thinking “ARE YOU CRAZY!! We are in the dead of winter, and you want me to freeze my ass off in the Pacific, doing cold water training?!?!” I told them that I would call later this week to let them know for sure if I could make it. After sitting and thinking, I actually started to consider it. It would be quite an experience. I’ve never done that kind of karate training, and I always see them doing that kind of hardcore training in the movies. It does look cool on TV, but I’m not so sure know how cool it’s going to be to freeze my testicles off real life…I’m just sayin’.
I can’t believe I’m actually considering this…pray for me,
