Kendo’s base, amidst the stunning winter stillness….

“…like a deep, deep breath in, held, and released with complete and utter control…”

Winter is powerfully symbolic of the inner strength of the warrior; the power of nature appears dormant, but has merely retreated temporarily, gathering strength ahead of its next advance, when the time is right… So, the warrior withdraws from time to time, consolidating his focus and his energies, in a deep stillness which increases his one-ness with his controlled and powerful expression…

Immense growth is possible in times of stillness; the greater the stillness, the greater can be the realisation and growth of true power.
