Hot and humid, add a thick dogi and now having to breath through a mask. Less contact and not as much fun with techniques, more ukemi and long sessions of kihon dosa. Training has gotten even harder. Both physically and mentally challenging.
But like Covid-19, it will pass. We will survive. The summer will be over and we will be stronger than ever. We will come to appreciate human interaction/contact, oxygen, and freedom, the simple things we have taken for granted. Playing outside, meeting friends and talking face to face, grabbing wrists and throwing each other around. Everything will be seen through new eyes. Let`s enjoy these challenges that have been put forth. A chance to improve and better ourselves.
