Hello All!

Right so i have now been here for 8 months or so?! What the hell did i do,
I hardly updated my blog, was i that busy?! Truth me told...Certainly not.....

Sure i been t a few surrounding areas...But most of my time was involved with working, staying in saving money and trying to train....But that was hard with minimal motivation...

It was good times and rough times staying in NZ,
I got back into better form than i was upon first arriving from India after being ill,

I had trained at a Kyokushin Karate club for a short while i was here which i really enjoyed but then after a while didnt enjoy the vibe too much, So then found a Seido Karate club which is a break off branch from Kyokushin, The club was awesome! While the times i was not working, i was hitting every session i could there, Which was usually more than to a day, On Sundays it was pretty much 3 hours solid training....It was great i was feeling alive again!

But then one thing came in the way,....Work..... The hours i worked really did clash with the training times so i found myself unable to carry on training with them, Its a shame also that club was really good, I felt so welcomed there, and it was a great feeling.... I was feeling back in form also,

I remember them asking me to perform a Shotokan Kata, as they had noticed i had done Karate before, I was so nervous to do it in front of all the class, But the teachers there seem quite pleased with my performance and they all complimented me, Which was great, So i thank Vlad very much for his Karate instruction to me! heheh,

I remember sparring with some of the guys there, I was quite on form, and was pleased with my performance, But when i started working again, IT was annoying as it clashed so much,

Eventually i had another period where i didnt work , I joined a Muay Thai club, it was really well kitted out, I was moved into the Advance class which was nice, But the club felt too "structured" like a business, I ended up working again and having to leave training there, Little did i know i had to pay an ETC fee for the contract and also pay for the "free kit" i recieved hahah, So i felt that was a bit of a joke,

I remember getting invited to spar, And it was one guy who looked like he was one of their "fighters" , I had asked him this and i was right, Anyway i could tell he was going to want to prove a point, And in the ring i didnt like his attitude, I remember he hit me once, which i thought was OTT for sparring, so i remmber giving him one back , A nice uppercut on the chin, he didnt like that one, eventually the Teacher stopped the spar, he kept on telling us to "calm down" , But if they other guy is lashing for me sure i will hold my ground too....

Other than that i really didnt do much to be honest, I tried to do some training at home, also, at one point i was on the form of the life of my life, but when i stopped going to the classes due to work, I decided to loose motivation...

To be honest i got into a dark deep hole of myself...The lifestyle here was getting to me...
I turned lazy and hate myself for it...I lost alot of focus, And was disapointed in what i had done, I had too much time to think, and the own mind can destroy your self at times.... But i had the rest of my trip to look forward to so i guess that made me happy....

But so far i dont feel like my mission is NO WHERE Near complete....

Wow that was enough of a blarb!

Hope all is well guys!

Take care!
