The Meaning of Osu with Barbosa Sensei
Unfortunate, today you see everybody using this term Osu all over the Facebook just because they liked a picture! Few know the profound meaning of this Japanese word. Barbosa Sensei explains with detail what Osu means to the real Budoka.
To him It is the inner Tiger ready to be unleashed by those who know how to harness its power, it is tough to explain he says, but when a Karateka scream OSU, he feels the power overcoming his whole body, it reveals itself in many forms, for some is a like a shock wave, for others is a boost of adrenaline, I know it sounds cliche out of a comic book, but with hard training it will manifest itself to you.
