Hello,dear fellows. This will be a very special post. A post that was about to appear few months ago ,but I did not have the gutts to write it,or probably there where few ideas which I liked to add to the body of the article. Lets see what I have for you today.
My first touch to Japan and Japaneese culture,was when I started training aikido in 5th grade of high school- when I was 12 years of age.I was impressed from the first time ,I went into the hall and onto the “tatami”.When we were practicing,we counted on Japaneese:ich,nee,san,chi.. Yes,I was very small,but I got estonished and felt in love-felt in love with this martial art and with the wonderful country -Japan.
When you feel and have strong emotions and vibes,you want to know everything about the object of your feelings. The next step was to read the book “Shogun” by James Klavel. I had learnt many useful information and many words -“ukarimas ka?”.
While the time was passing and I was getting older ,I learnt a lot about kendo,origami ,yakudza. I also began to read a lot of poetry from Japaneese authors. Had watched the movie “Last samurai” with Tom Cruze more then 10 times. I was working for 7 years in different hotels,where I had spoken with many people from Japan. One of my favorite authors is Haruki Murakami. He is a genius.
But we are gathered to speak here about sports. Some Japaneese sportsmen gain attention all around the globe,where and in which stadiums they are playing:
- Key Nishikori – magnificent and briliant young player. He soon will be in top 3.
- All the brave Japaneese football players participating in top 10 teams in Europe:Honda,Nagatomo,Kagawa.
- Baseball – this is a special area for smart Japaneese players.
I would like to say something about betting in Japan. For asians mostly it is fun,relax and entertainment. They accept it like drinking of beer or chatting with a friend. One of the best punters and gamblers are the ones,who do not take themselves too seriously.
I would like to come and see Japan some day and to exchange knowledge face to face with my readors from that very loved type of the world. Sayonara:)
P.S I am very proud with one man ,because he comes from my country -Kotooshu:) Also I forgot to mention ,I love reading and writing “haiku”. Also not on the last place to say about “Bushido”- the moral codex of every warrior and samurai.
