October 28 – intense

Although my boys train a lot, it doesn’t sound as intense as my friend’s kids in Japan. They are early teens, and want to play professional baseball. He said they have training all day on the weekend! All day?? That is intense! Our soccer training is a maximum of 75 minutes!

He also said that they train no matter what the weather. And they are not supposed to take drink breaks. He said that Japanese baseball is very intense, and that it still follows the culture of training from many, many years ago, of “no pain, no gain.”

Is that true? If so, it’s sounds a bit too intense for young kids! I hope they can still have fun and enjoy playing, too!
