    Default Time's almost out for the West Coast Tai Kai ...

    So, the next West Coast Tai Kai is almost here. Who all is planning on attending? I'll be there, but then I'm an acknowledged budo slut and can't help myself.

    Since I hadn't heard anything about it on-line, I put a thread about it in the event forum. I left a link to their web site there for anyone that doesn't know what the heck I'm talking about.

    Cheers,
    Paul Smith

    I've got two kids in college. My wallet's never easy! Somehow I always end up good for at least one round!

    Default Wooooohooooo!!!

    I'm so there! Next year. The family and I just moved to San diego last month, and we're still settling in. Our furniture arrives on Wednesday (finally). Just becuase I'm used to sleeping on futons laid out on tatami (or carpet) doesn't mean I want to.
    So, soon as I can settle and start my training back up (Alvarez Sensei?) I'll make next year's event.

    2ND Annual West Coast Taikai Results


    This year there was a tie for the Yusho or overall winner of the taikai and has never happened before!

    Just a few days after this event was over (sadly couldn't attend this time, either) I received the DVD from the first one ;-)
    It will be interesting to see some more of my original school of iai (Mugai Ryu).
    Regards
