After: When we moved from our dojo, my instructor gave me some of the old equipment. Now I have a place where I can work out without spending time away from home.
This sign was hanging in the old dojo when I first started there several years ago. I found it when we were cleaning the place out and decided to keep it. It motivates me to dig a little deeper and work a little harder.
I can see and hear the children playing in the fence from here. Sometimes, they even come play with me. (Little Gigi can be especially fierce!)
