So my website is celebrating its 1 year birthday!!!! To help celebrate the event I have got permission from my good friend and fellow- Japanophile Mr Mario McKenna (and fellow irishman!) to share one of my all time favorite articles.
For those of you who do not know Mario or his work he is a well renowned translator and historian of karate and kobudo primary sources. Having lived in both japan and Okinawa for over a decade Mario's work continues to inspire those who have come across it. Currently resideing in Canada Mario continues to teach and explore Kobudo and Karate.
I hope you enjoy and find as inspiring as I did this great article entitled: "So What did you think you were practicing"
Okinawan and Japanese Budo
