Dear Mr. Emad Khalil and JKA of Jordan,
I am very happy to know that you are training and working very hard and encouraging everyone in JKA of Jordan to train and work very hard too.
Karate is developing and spreading very fast all over the world as a competitive sport. But it is very important to understand that competition is only one aspect of the total training of Martial Arts. Martial Arts were established for the development and training of the Samurai. The Samurai worked hard to protect his family, and if the Samurai did not do that they could die. Training to always hit the target was part of this. If he missed the target, he could not protect his family. But the character development of the Samurai was also very important. The way that he conducted himself and lived his daily life was also very important.
The development of good character is the main and most important part of training in the Martial Arts. Training for self-improvement, studying how to develop more efficiency and proper application of the use of energy is also very important. This comes through hard training and sweat.
Also, Karate training should be done according to each individual’s condition to make themselves improve. The method of self-improvement is also learning from experience that you can use in daily life.
Many people think that Karate is only for young people, but this is wrong. Karate is for everyone, regardless of age to have as a lifetime of disciplined training.
I hope that everyone in JKA of Jordan is in good health, training hard and working hard to make JKA of Jordan a success.
JKA U S A
SHIHAN TAKAYUKI MIKAMI
