Weekend quote – Gustave Le Bon

1st quote

The first is that the individual forming part of a crowd acquires, solely from numerical considerations, a sentiment of invincible power which allows him to yield to instincts which, had he been alone, he would perforce have kept under restraint.

He will be the less disposed to check himself from the consideration that, a crowd being anonymous, and in consequence irresponsible, the sentiment of responsibility which always controls individuals disappears entirely.

The Friday morning group learned the opening bow kata and the first Rokushaku Bo (long stick) kata. Next Friday we will learn the second kata and repeat the techniques we learned.

During the week some of the groups will learn advanced multiple opponent scenarios while some will repeat the Fudo Ryu throws.

This week I will only teach in Jerusalem, Sunday, and Tel Aviv, Thursday.

I will not be present at the other sessions because of the Detant seminar for rescue and emergency situations that will take place at Rescue-1. Experts and team leaders from Japan and Israel will participate and my Detant teaching duties will prevent regular teaching in AKBAN.

AKBAN instructors will teach in my stead.

At Friday, 08:00, I will teach Rokshaku Bo in Tel Aviv Honbu dojo.
