for sure my friend.......I will be there.....because Hermes will be in the last part of his trainning to MFC....
Osu is the one word that you'll hear the most in my life or to any Samurai. When you enter or leave the dojo, you bow and say "Osu". When you greet a fellow , you say "Osu" instead of "hello". When you respond to an instruction or question in class, you say "Osu" instead of "yes" or "I understand". When performing kihon waza (basic techniques) in class, each technique is often accompanied with a loud "Osu". When practicing jiyu kumite (free fighting) in class and your opponent lands a good, hard technique, you say "Osu" to acknowledge your opponent's skill. As a measure of respect, knockdown fighters at a tournament bow and say "Osu" to the front, to the referee and to each other, before and after the fight. Osu is used in many situations and seems to mean a lot of things. But what does it really mean?
Osu is a contraction of the words:
||Oshi meaning "Push", and|
||Shinobu meaning "to Endure".|
It means patience, determination and perseverance. Every time we say "Osu", we remind ourselves of this.
MMA training is very demanding. You push yourself until you think you've reached your limit. First your body wants to stop, but your mind keeps pushing you. Then your mind wants to stop, but your spirit keeps you going. You endure the pain. You persevere....
That is Osu.....
