A Day of Rest

Halloween is always a dojo holiday. Children don’t want to train – they want to trick-or-treat. So, if you can’t beat ’em, join ’em. That’s pretty much become the halloween mantra. Let them have some fun and then work hard the next time they’re in.

As adults, aren’t we the same way? I’m not going to lie, I look forward to this night. I get to be home with my family. Not that I don’t love my dojo family – of course I do! Halloween becomes a delightful treat in the middle of a hectic time of year. Staying home, curling up and spending time with my family have long become my favorite halloween memories.

We all need a break now and then. Recharge the batteries. Relax. Regroup. When we come back to our training after a brief break we’re more enthusiastic and full of energy to tackle new katas, more advanced combinations and create innovative teaching techniques.

Enjoy your treats tonight. Spend time with family and make some memories. Then hop back into the dojo and work harder tomorrow.
