Tea Break お茶休憩
In order to keep classes as authentic to Japanese training as possible, a tea break is done at the end of class. While not as deep as a tea ceremony, the break is for the students to enjoy the hospitality of the instructor, self-reflection and finding some calmness through a world of noise and speed. The group usually discuss stories, training insights, personal struggles, or just reflect in their own personal space.
*Due to COVID-19, this is currently done sporadically and when there are fewer students present.
