The good news is that all of us came back safely, nobody got lost in the Black Forest, or amidst the Swiss Alps (despite thick fog and heavy showers tried to make us lose our way). Even Marco came back to his cosy Swedish house, just in time to enjoy some fading sunlight, before sinking again in the deep darkness of northern winter.
The bad news is that the Takudai Seminar 2019 was… well, quite disappointing. Maybe because we had high expectations? Mmmh, maybe…

What does it happen when two karate teachers drive until Verona to attend a workshop organized by EducaJudo (i.e. it is JUDO!)?
Well, this was the question we left with, in that freezing saturday morning.
Anyhow, as often occurs, one shouldn’t judge a book by its cover, or a person by his clothes, or… well, you got the point, didn’t you?

Since New Year has begun and we want to welcome it, I choose the salute as the topic of this post. Of course salute in martial arts: this is a karate-do website. It’d be weird to find something else, like as an article about the 100 most healthy recipes, wouldn’t it?
