The Joy of Practice - Renshi Lisa

I began training in martial arts in 1995. I have studied multiple styles and love to practice when I travel. 

In New York City, my family and I did Kata (forms) in Rockefeller Plaza and multiple locations in Central Park.

In Toronto, I was a guest at the Northern Karate School and  I headed to the rooftop of my hotel each morning.

In Italy, I practiced in the center of the Pantheon. 

This photo was taken by a fellow author at a writer's retreat in Vermont.

3-times in the last year we have traveled to the beach at sunrise.

Practice for the Sake of Practice. Beauty of the Place. Passion for the Work.
