Greetings forum members.

This forum should be used for questions and comments about martial arts related supplies and equipment, and also for Japanese-related clothing and supplies in general: what a particular item is, where to get it, recommended brands and suppliers, etc.

Within the forum we have members interested in and knowledgable about everything from swords to tea sets, kimono to dogi, and 'most everything else one can think of.

This is the place to post questions, answers, and comments on such topics.

If you have items to sell, though, that kind of post should usually be made in the E-Budo Marketplace thread. Exceptions can be made for an offer to sell an item asked about in a thread started by someone else, and that sort of thing, but please don't make this a "For Sale" forum; the Marketplace is already here for that.
