Trip to Okinawa by Lucie Talevi

Lucie with O'Sensei I went to Okinawa with certain goals in mind and I have met them all. I came away from the experience having learned many lessons (most of them unexpected). The experience has put many things into perspective for me. I have a much deeper understanding of and appreciation for what is truly important. Karate is a discipline which requires people to master themselves in a way that is evident in Okinawa, not only through martial arts but how people live their lives. This experience has changed the way I view many things. I will carry what I learned with me forever and pass it on to my children.
