What is Shisei Ryu for you?
This question on Friday 22 March 2019 corresponded to two Makotoshin Dojo students during the Shodan Shisei Ryu exam. Each of us probably can very well reproduce his first master exam in his memory. Even if the exam has taken years back. In part because for some the positive passing of the exam was associated with quite a challenge and hard work in the dojo. For others it is the next step on the road to personal development. In school, Shisei Ryu is an important moment when a specific thread is established between the teacher and the student. Until now, the student accepted his teacher and only at the moment of the exam the teacher begins to notice the student’s budoka, which from now on can shape the future teacher. What kind of students will be Wiktor Stachowiak and Ryszard Madejczyk, it will be time to show. At the moment both of them showed their knowledge of the techniques and their attitude confirmed that they fully deserve Shodan Shisei Ryu.
I wholeheartedly congratulate you!
