LETTER FROM THE BUDO BROTHERS

It's hard to believe that summer is pretty much over. But, after reminiscing on what a great summer it really was, in this issue we share a really cool experience we had at our annual training camp in the mountains of Canada, and show you how a hanbo can be used for more than just training.

Lastly, we are excited to announce a new addition to our line that we think you will really enjoy. Ok, I'll give you a hint: It's hot, green, and makes miracles happen. 

As always, thank you for your support. It means the world to us!

Much Love,

- Budo Brothers

tIME FOR SOME Matcha real talk

MATCHA. WHAT IS IT?

Simple. It’s a supercharged green tea in powdered form that punches you in the mouth with flavor. But don't worry, the many health benefits of matcha will help you recover fast.

It’s rich, it’s creamy, and pretty much just a frothy cup of healthy amazingness.

Now, not all matcha is created equal! Quality is important, and it usually comes at a price. 

But, one thing is for sure, once you try some good top shelf matcha, you’ll never go back!

the taki shugyo:

Every year our martial arts club heads out to the mountains for a few days of intensive training.

It’s called Yamabushi Gashuku. These camps are centered around growth. We expand our skills and expand our minds by partaking in various challenges that tests our grit.

Every year there is a “main event” that pushes your boundaries and takes you WAY beyond your comfort zone.

This year was the Taki Shugyo. It’s about facing adversity, and ploughing through.

It’s also about cleansing, by symbolically letting the flow of the waterfall wash away whatever it is that you wish to let go of.

My sensei, who is also a Shinto Priest, lead us through the Taki Shugyo this year. 

First, we honored the four directions, and tried to prepare ourselves for what was about to come.

Then, we enter the waterfall and try to stay as long as we can.

Water is crashing down on you like a ton of bricks. Glacial runoff will cause your body to start hyperventilating. You can’t breath, you can’t see, you can’t hear

… all you can do is feel.

When you feel a state of presence that allows you to converge on the moment, you let out a massive kiai (battle cry) as you resurface, being snapped into present time; Not worrying about the future, not regretting the past, just being present in the very moment.
