Mr. WARITA`s winning thoughts.
Even though we went to the representative 3 month training camp held at Nippon Bunri University in Oita aiming for first place, we took second place by a narrow margin. Regret welled up inside as we watched the winning team dance around in joy right before us. At this competition it feels like I have experienced what it is to “lose” for the first time. It was also great being able to compete on the international level as a TUFS student once more. Now my retirement and then graduation is approaching however, I would like to use this experience to fuel my activities around the world.
