We had our Embukai, the public demonstration for our dojo just now at Tropicana City Mall. It has been ten days we have been training daily together. The camaraderie amongst the Indonesian senseis/ students and our dojo gang is awesome, they would be sorely missed when they fly off next Saturday.
I only have one complain with the whole experience. We eat a wee bit too much, usually after training ends at 10.30pm. So even though we train everyday, I seem to pile it all back in at night. But what to do, must show hospitality and bring our guests around for good food right? Ya right.
The part time maids who come to our house on a weekly basis said this to me, ” Wahhh buuuu kamu sudah gemukk yaaaa!” (Laser and berani betul si deni. Potong gaji baru tau!)
Nevertheless, I’m having an awesome time and wish that time would go really, really slowly this week.

Defeating opponents by using one’s center. Sensei moved his center and these 4 big strong guys stumbled down like humpty dumpy.
Errr…after that, we ate banana leaf rice at PJ. I know, I know it doesn’t make sense.
