At my karate club people call me Sensei, and my friends just call me Richard.

Wadokai Kanto Regionals 和道会全関東大会

The Wadokai Kanto Region Championships was on Sunday, March 26 at the Komazawa Olympic Park. There were 12 competition rings and probably well over 1000 competitors. Unfortunately I couldn't compete because of my torn right calf muscle and I had a bad stomach flu that day too. But it was great to see many friends from different dojo (like Maeda Sensei's dojo), and to cheer on a kindergarten graduate who placed 3rd in his first tournament for kata, way to go!

今月26日(日曜日)に、駒沢オリンピック公園アリーナで、和道会全関東大会が行われました。1000人は優に超えそうな数の選手が12の競技場で競いました。残念ながら、僕は右足の肉離れとウィルス性胃腸炎のせいで不参加でした。それでも、いろいろな道場の友人と久しぶりに会えてよかったです。また、僕の応援していた幼稚園卒園生が、初めての大会出場で形で三位に入賞しました。頑張ったね!
