After my “Kuchi Waza” post, one of my Karate Sensei sent me a message that said “Bun Bu Ryo Do”. I am not fluent in Japanese, or in Samurai tradition, so I had to Google it…
When I read that, it made me cry a little (yes, I am a huge dork). I didn’t really know that it was considered equally important for Samurai to be skilled in arts such as writing. When my Sensei sent me that message, it felt as if he was telling me that I should be blogging, or at least that it was acceptable within martial tradition.
Of course, everyone knows that I don’t exactly fit in with the Samurai. Their role is to serve, and I shall have no master! So, it’s even cooler that a Superhero Samurai such as my Sensei would give his seal of approval, and share his teachings, with a Villain Kunoichi such as myself! I am honored.
