Last weekend I participated in the 2006 International Spring Workshop on Chi Kung, Jisei Budô, Tai Chi Chuan and Energy Dance, organized by the “Escola Tradicional de Karatedo” (Karatedo Traditional School).
It was teached by Sensei Tokitsu, a person I came to admire by his history, philosophy and martial arts skills. You can browse his site and take a look at his works, books published and martial arts school.
The workshop lasted for 4 days, it was very tyring on the muscles (but I guess that’s what you get for working daily too much hours in front of the pc ) but nonetheless it was also very fun and educational (for the body and mind).
I felt like i’ve improved on a spiritual, physical and also personal level with this workshop, in the end I was wishing the workshop could last longer.
I’m really looking forward for the next event, untill there i’m going to continue working on my skills and improve myself.
I feel it’s important to have some sort of activity outside work, my mind needs it’s creativity stimulated and my body needs to work it’s muscles, improve coordenation and in general maintain my level of health.
And you, do you practice any sport activity or martial arts outside your work?
