I lost my dojo's lease at the end of April. This ended the chapter known as Austin Budokan. I loved that place and the people that filled it. Alas, change is the only constant.
I have been working hard on building a private dojo for the past couple years. In truth it was a mother in law house, but she decided to make other plans after I committed myself to the project. A few of us have been getting together and working out in the debris of the build. Unfortunately the new dojo is much further south so the regular crew I had at the old dojo is now cast to the winds.
Over the summer I was blessed with the chance to teach a few seminars. I continue to enjoy this aspect of the art.
I am trying to recommit myself to the blog. I need to go through it and update/delete old posts and continue to strive to develop new material. Please shout out any encouragement. It is hard to get the writing engine going again.
Anyhow...for the 2 readers I used to have that are still around, I'm hanging in there.
