|Team Finland 2017|
And so it begun. On Sunday we celebrated the 70th anniversary of Shorinji Kempo by the World Taikai in San Mateo, USA.
We had honoured guests from outside and inside of our organisation present.
The first embu groups were children and young people's categories.
|Waiting for our turn...|
I must say that unlike many times, I was not all that nervous this time... Maybe because we knew our shit, or maybe simply because I was so ill, that I thought - fuck it - I'll do my best, I'll do what I can, and that must be enough.
Most pictures by me...
