made you decide to take a rest and not retire.
MA: After finishing this season I felt I did it. However, I don't feel I'll retire right now. That's my honest feelings at this point. Both of my mind and body are very tired. I want to take a rest anyway.
-What is the percentages of your comeback?
-What are the things you have to do during your rest?
MA: I started studying back in school. I'll mainly study in my daily life. I'll skate too.
-Your decision was made earlier than expected. Why?
MA: After finishing the season, sometimes I felt I can continue, and sometimes I felt I can't. The Ice is coming soon so I kept training as usual. I've been doing the very best I could do everyday all through the years, without taking a break. When I asked myself that I can continue the same life for one more quad, the answer was no. I felt I need a rest. I also felt I need change of air. That's why I decided to take one season rest.
