Hey, Nobu! Can you tell me anything about what you do in a dojo?
Yes. Well, I go to dojo, which means gym or sports center in English
pretty much every day. I practice boxing and kickboxing or one hour or less. And I
practice jujistsu, which is ground fighting, and grappling for two hours or so.
And after that, I kind of do weights, lift weights for thirty minutes
or so I kind of stay at the gym for 4 hours, 4 1/2 hours or so.

Sounds pretty intense. Sounds like you spend a long time there every day.
Can you teach me how to kickbox or do anything to protect myself because
sometimes I think I need a little self-defense.
Yes, I can teach you anything. Any martial arts that I know.
You can come to my gym. My gym is called Paestra, Matsudo. You can
take Joban line and you get off at Matsudo station and exit the east side
of the station and you go straight and you'll see Paestra.

When should we meet? What time?
Ah, next Monday.
Sounds good.
And we start practicing at about six or so.
Am I gonna train for four hours?
No you can leave whenever you want. You can leave whenever you want.
One hours, two hours, anything.

Are you going to start easy with me?
Yes. I'm gonna go easy on you.
Alright, I'll be there.
