押忍(OSU)的真義

OSU!代表耐性、尊敬和感激

在嚴格的肉體及精神修煉當中、你將會面對及遭受自我極限之挑戰、 那時候你會有放棄、退縮和逃避的念頭、但是、你一定要用堅定的意志去把一切懦弱雜念克服、

這様你就必然會得到最後的勝利。能有這様的修為之前、你必須學習堅定、忍耐和不屈不饒的精神、這些就是OSU!的意。

關心自己也就是自我的尊重、因為你對自我的關心、你才會讓自己去接受刻苦的鍛錬。

這種自我尊重的精神會演化及擴展成對別人的尊重。當你進出道場前、 都會先行禮及説OSU!這就是代表你對道場、學員及自我尊重之精神。

代表尊重的精神

因為你對自我的尊重、所以你會豁盡全力去練習、當練習完畢時、為了表示你對自我、 其它學員或教練之尊重和感激、所以要向他們行禮及説OSU!

OSU!在極真派空手道而言、是非常嚴肅及重要的、它象徴著耐性、尊重和感激等崇高精神。

我們必須把OSU!常掛在口邊、時刻提醒自己這個不可忘記的品徳。

 

The meaning of Osu

Osu! Means patience, respect and appreciation

Kyokushin training is very demanding. You push yourself until you think you've reached your limit. First your body wants to stop, to give up, but your mind keeps pushing you. Then your mind wants to stop, but your spirit keeps you going. When you reach this point you must fight yourself and your weakness and you must win. To do this you must endure the pain, you must learn to persevere, but above all you must learn to be patient. That is Osu!

The reason you subject yourself to hard training is because you care about yourself, and to care about yourself is to respect yourself. This self respect evolves and expands to become respect for your instructor and fellow students. When you enter the dojo you bow and say "Osu" . This means you respect your dojo and the time you spend training there. This feeling of respect is OSU!

It means respect

During training you push yourself as hard as possible because you respect yourself. When you finish you bow to your insructor and fellow students and say "Osu" once more. You do this out of appreciation. This feeling of appreciation is OSU.

Osu! means appreciation

Thus OSU is a very important word in Kyokushin Karate because it signifies patience, respect and appreciation. That is why we always use the word OSU to remind ourselves of these indispensable qualities.
