    Default Been Away for a While

    Hello all,

    After being away from the forums for a few years I am re-activating my membership and will be posting again in the forums. (I used to post as kuma-de).

    My name is Jim Prouty from New England area. I have been training in Okinwan Goju Ryu and Shorin Ryu since 1972.

    I would be open to discussions on kata history, bunkai, and practical oyo. Feel free to message me.

    Gambatte,

    Jim

    Welcome back! We hope you will be a regular visitor and contributor. There are a number of Okinawan stylists, as well as some Shorin Ryu folks, who lurk here. It would be nice to see some lively conversations again!

    Welcome back. I am a new member here and I signed up some weeks ago. Was hoping for the threads to be more active than what I expected but glad to see it still ain't dead.

    We're still breathing! Just need a kick-start now and then.

    Hello.

    I think E-Budo is not alone in suffering the effects of newer phenomena like Facebook, associated with social media. I participate in another forum and this, too, has seen a general decline in active participation. Perhaps the moderators need to take on a more active role of encouraging discussion, rather than simply stepping in to referee or keep order...
