    Yamato Day 2

    "On the cold weather, emotions warmed the body. As Japanese descendent, I felt privileged to learn about my ancestors" (Teruo, from Ponta Grossa City, Paraná State, Brazil)

    "This was my induction to a Yamato event and I felt honored and thankful to Sensei for sharing so many deep details about the Japanese culture with us from a Western culture. I try to consolidate the whole event in one single word: new. A lot of new information learned, and I felt renewed myself, over and over again" (Antunes, from Rio de Janeiro City, Rio de Janeiro State, Brazil).

    "I substituted anxiety by serenity, uncertainty by determination and a certain of will to keep learning more and more. These were the lessons that I learned in this event" (Botinhão, from Rio de Janeiro City, Rio de Janeiro State, Brazil).

    "During the practice sessions, all the details and secrets of each Kihon and Kata proved that Sensei is our true link with Japan. I was really missing this feeling of exhaustion at the end of the practice – an exhaustion over all body, but at no time at the mind and spirit.
    Mind and spirit both were burning!" (Tengan, from Ana Rosa Dojo, at São Paulo City, São Paulo State, Brazil).

    "The Kobudo is still entirely alive in Niten and we are studding old traditions with a Swordmaster that pushes us to go further and longer" (Saraiva, from the Ilha do Governador Dojo, Rio de Janeiro City, Rio de Janeiro State, Brazil).
