A brief thought.
I always have loved Japanese culture.
In my early life in school I found interesting the feeling of martial arts, not only the power that gives you, but also the sense of respect and self conscious of your strength and weakness.
I didn't expect at that moment that in the future this feeling would become into the confidence to learn more and more about Japanese society and this awesome language.
If you are Japanese or you know the Japanese language, please bear with me for the following years cause I just started learning Japanese last year. Learn on your own is tough.
