Those 3 kanjis above mean karate-dou ("the way of the empty hand"). Why am I writing this post about karate? Well, it is simply 'coz I have taken it up recently!
Everything started when Carolina decided to offer some introductory karate lessons in August. I had been wanting to start karate for a very long time, so it was the perfect opportunity! After ten lessons and having got familiar with terms like fudodashi or sotomawashigeri, I can say I will keep on practicing it in winter. Actually, it is even cooler than expected!
Last Friday, it was sunny when we were going to practice and it was decided to carry it out outside, on the grass. Carolina senpai brought her camera and this is the result!
