Greetings: Our fellow kenshi Alex Bennett Sensei was on NHK TV show that shows my Alma-matter, Kansai University (Kandai). He now teaches Bushido and Budo as well as Kendo to his Japanese College Students at Kandai.


Note to myself:
***********************************************************************
Someone who makes a mistake sometimes uses excuse "no one's perfect."

In reality, perfection may not exist. But in theory, it does.

For example, if there is no perfect image, nothing can be done.
An architectural draft must be perfect to build a house even though the house built based on that draft may not be perfect.

This concept can be applied to Kendo.
Because you have the vision of the perfect Menuchi, you can try to execute that. And you believe that someday, you will do it as you imagine it.

In reality, it may not be possible, but in theory, it is possible. Therefore it will be possible.

No one is perfect, but that can not be used as an excuse. It becomes the truth if you give up trying to be perfect. No one will become perfect. No one will get even close to it.

Having the perfect image and try to get there will only get you to near perfection.
Important part is not "to become perfect", but it is "to have the perfect image" and "try hard to get up there".

I believe that the concept of Zanshin includes this idea.
