Thread: Hello and Thank You

    Dear Obata Soke,

    My name is Tony Tung; I am a beginning student of Scott Sensei in Hermosa Beach. I wanted to say several things.

    First of all, thank you for taking the time to appear on a forum such as this--to see you spreading the art of Shinkendo has been an inspiration for several students like myself. It is fantastic to see such active involvement from the one who with such a wide range of experience and knowledge.

    I also want to thank you for sharing Shinkendo with the world in general. I have trained in different arts in the past, and each has taught me a wide range of things. I must say that Shinkendo has given me that "something" that I have been searching for ever since I came to Los Angeles. I tried looking at several kendo dojos and iaido classes, and although close, nothing seemed to really strike me (excuse the pun) until I found Nathan Scott Sensei back at Loyola.

    Since then I have undertaken the study of Shinkendo with much of my time outside of work and tried to embrace it into all areas of my life. It has given me a chance to meet challenges within myself, and to use what I learn in class to help me develop as a person.

    I look forward to the day when Tsuki Kage Dojo is ready to humbly request your presence to teach a seminar at our branch.

    Please take care and know that you have given quite a gift to the martial arts world. I am honoured to be a part of it.

    I am happy that more people are starting to support and understand Shinkendo as a whole. I would like students to understand the philosophy and enjoy Shinkendo for what it is.

    With students and instructors like you, I think that Shinkendo will become better over time, as other martial arts have that have endured the test of time.

    I wish that students that are serious will one day start to teach Shinkendo and share it with others.

    Please study Kuyo Junikun and Hachido...

    "Put strength into your practice, and avoid conceit. It is easy enough to understand a strategy and guard against it after the matter has already been settled, but the reason an opponent becomes defeated is because they didn't learn of it ahead of time. This is the nature of secret matters. That which is kept hidden is what we call the Flower."
