    I also can recommend a craftsman who makes custom jo, bokuto and other wooden practice weapons. Dan Blizniak. As he has a website and promotes his work, he likely wouldn't mind an endorsement here....

    Thanks, great site! Skimmed and saved it for future closer reading. Was happy to see Lance Gatling's name on it. He was a regular here (and, I think, on Jujutsu-L) waaay back in the day.

    No art has a pristine history, and there is always family laundry. ;) Interesting side notes to a notable family that adopted a Japanese art and made it an internationally recognized Brazilian sport.

    The golden age of internet forums passed a long time ago. Social media has replaced the dedicated forum website. I still believe in maintaining this site for the treasure trove of historic, cultural,...

    Apparently, the lockdown has made people even less inclined to visit old internet discussion boards!

    An old book like that might turn up on EBay or Etsy, but it must be a rare bird. I hope you find a copy.

    The older form of TKD I originally trained in (i.e. "Korean karate") had a crescent step, too. It was meant to be used as a sweep and ankle hook, and also as protection from a sweep.

    The difference is mainly about weight and thickness of the fabric. Judo gi take a beating -- the jackets, especially, are grabbed, yanked, twisted, pulled, whiplashed. Jackets are quilted so they...

    Using the stretchy-end iaijutsu obi solves the problem, at least for me, as the friction of the fabric keeps the obi snug. You wrap it tight and tuck the soft end in flat, and it holds. The slightly...

    I use one of the soft iaijutsu obi (not kaku obi, as they are too stiff for my old fingers to tie well), which has the stretchy end that tucks and lies smoothly against the body. It sits on top of my...

    Thank you, Peter!

    I haven't been able to reach either admin. As a moderator, I can't do anything that alters the settings for the site. I'm sorry. We seem to be the Flying Dutchman of internet forums.

    Hm. Maybe they need an instructor to help them adjust the angle. My hunch is that they tie their obi high on their waist, while most men I know bring it down just under the belly. This is because the...
