Lisa Clark's Journal

Outside the Dojo

Its been a while since I've been in the dojo for class, but that doesn't mean it's time to stop practicing.

Baby is due May 16. I'd like to say everything has been graceful, sunshine and rainbows, but I have a new respect for the mothers who have come before me. It's been hard in unexpected ways and easier in others. Everything I learned in the dojo has helped. Breathing, how to stay active at your fitness level, mental focus, daily discipline, intentional smiles on grumpy days,… Continue

The beginning of the new year is always a great time for reflection. This last week in particular has been full of meditation.

Looking back on the last year, specifically the UBBT, I took on too much and too little at the same time. What I mean is I was capable of everything I committed to, but I was overconfident in my response to the unexpected life challenges. It was a big year last year. Just a few of the life changes: committed to UBBT Team 7, scheduled my life around the…

Dojo Visit

For the last two weeks, dad and I were in Florida helping my brother move in to his new home. There was lots to do! Three of the four major projects were finished with headway on the fourth. It was also a great vacation. The highlight was visiting a local Shorin-Ryu dojo. Okinawan Shorin-Ryu Karate-Do was the name. Renshi Geoffrey Gaudoin was kind enough to allow me to attend adult class.

The night arrives. Always show up early. Why? Stretching is good but watching the kids class was… Continue

UBBT Update

Journal entries have slowed down because there hasn't been much to update. Numbers are pitifully behind. Life is tipsy turvy. And everything is just as it should be.

Character building has been the focus of June and July. The first two codes of bushido are on my mind of late. #1: Rectitude: To do the right thing. #2: Bravery: To have courage when faced with a challenge. These two principles have served as guides when mediating in the recent weeks. It was less about who was right and… Continue

Adren, have you joined the "Isshinryu Beginners" group? Both reference sheets are available for printout. Easy as that.

Lisa, I have been trying to find not only "our upper body basics" sheet-I thought it was posted here, but I'm really trying to find the leg kicks, any ideas? Hope your well today.

It was a great morning--nice to meet the folks down there. The kids did great.  Good idea to journal about it--I was wondering what I was going to write about.

LOL!  Yes, a "none" belt is odd.  I wasn't sure what to choose when I created my profile.  I joined because I want better physical fitness, focus, mental discipline, and self defense.

Hello! I'm sorry I am just seeing your message now. Very nice to meet you as well. My son and I are enjoying classes very much. Thank you so much for your help, and see you next time (I am away this evening).

Hi Lisa. Yes my Gi is from Judo. Definately better for grappling. I'm sure in the future I will purchase a different one due to the warmer weather. Sorry for such a late response. I'm trying to fix up my house, so I am always working on something!

Hi Lisa-
Yes, I'm working all over the place, but I enjoy it!
