    But how to solve it?...

    Kit,

    Kit,

    Musings...

    Smart folk think alike. Or is it smart a----s?

    Kit,

    Sticky: February?

    Yeah, February. That's a hard time here. It rains a bit more. It can get to be cold...maybe 75 degrees F at night. Shiver. I end up wearing a sweater because it's so cold! Ha.

    Jeff,

    In the limited time we had, it was great to have met you. Meik and Dave both pointed you out to me as someone who came all the way from Kentucky to train, a very dedicated individual, all...

    Scott,

    No problemo. Maybe guys wearing what looks like dresses and waving big sticks are intimidating to people, after all. We're either nuts or Scottish (a Scottish acquaintance of mine might say...

    Sticky: Mistake...

    One correction: The kusarigama ryu is Isshin-ryu, not Ikkaku-ryu. Another bonehead mistake by me.

    Scott,

    I was one of the presenters. After our embu, we fielded some queries from interested audience members. Usually, before a group did a demo, we introduced ourselves and explained what was...

    Leftiness...

    All,

    We have that in the West, too. The left eye is the evil eye.

    All,
