June 2012- Facing our Limits

BFP Senseis test their limits


As the summer sun lazily set on the horizons of HaHof HaYarok in Netanya, BFP Senseis worked up a sweat, pushing their personal limits, as they removed themselves from the comfort zone of the able-bodied and experienced firsthand the overwhelming challenges of those with physical and mental disabilities. Under the expert guidance and instruction of Sensei Assi Arnson of Assi Sport-Specialized Sports Training, an experienced martial artist and specialist in rehabilitative sports, our instructors encountered the unique obstacles and impediments faced by those who suffer from cognitive, physical and emotional handicaps on a daily basis. All of the Senseis tackled the exercises with determination, steadfastness and general good spirit. Not only did the seminar offer a bonding opportunity, it also equipped the participants with new sets of skills, sensitivities and a deeper understanding of what it is like to confront disabilities of this nature. An equally important aspect of the seminar was the open discussion which was held about the future opportunities and expectations of BFP and its instructors. We view our Senseis as key partners who are committed to advancing and instilling the fundamental values and beliefs of BFP in their students. In the future, we will continue to offer additional enrichment courses of this kind in order to broaden our prospects for pursuing our mission for systematic social change in our communities.
