[Blog] 熟練者大会出場選手の感想 〜個人戦男子60歳組手の部(自由組手)出場 武智公英先生〜

【Sensei Kimihide Takechi participated in the men’s 60-year-old kumite of the individual tournament 18th/November/2023】

日本空手協会熟練者全国大会、平成13年から都合がつく限り参加して来ました。

その間、反則負けからカテゴリー優勝まで一通り入賞して来ることができました。

人の前に立つことはまた自分自身と向き合うことだと思ってます。

日頃の心構えが如実に表れます。そして闘志向き合う相手と、試合終われば握手を交わせる、これは言葉を越えた経験者だけの財産です。

試合ごとに向上心が起きればと思います。

そこには師範や道場の稽古仲間の存在が宝です。

武智公英

I have participated in the Japan Karate Association Senior National Tournament since 2001 as long as I could make myself available.

During that time, I have been able to experience a whole series of prize-winning performances, including losing by penalties and winning my category.

I believe that standing in front of others is also about facing yourself.

In a match, your attitude really shows. And you can shake hands with your opponent at the end of the match. This is an asset that transcends language and is unique to those with experience.

I hope that with every match I experience, I can improve.

For this, the presence of your Sensei and fellow trainees in the dojo is a treasure.

Oss.
