Re: Wadoworld

Ben Pollock's excellent Wado Journal also folded at six issues.
Koshiki No Te didn't make it that far (as far as I know).

Re: New Wado Book

I just admit I had to google Terence Donovan, there is a striking resemblance but I wouldn't like to put money on it Shep Donovan was a fan of all things Japanese (apparently it happened after he saw Seven Samurai at the cinema). He was a Buddhist and Dan grade in Judo, regular at the Budokwai. Hen...

Re: New Wado Book

Great book, I'm really enjoying it.

Re: Shelfies

I was going to suggest a willy measuring contest - but I'd almost certainly lose that too! ;) Lighten up Gary :-) When you go into someone's house don't you find yourself drawn towards their bookshelves? With martial artists it's fun to see which books are in circulation and could act as a springbo...

Re: Competition Kata

I read it as a warning against homogenisation. Rote learning of simplified martial arts designed to make teaching to large numbers managable and as a result throwing baby out with the bathwater.

Shelfies

Here's one that might be fun. This gave me an idea. http://www.theguardian.com/books/booksblog/2013/dec/17/forget-selfies-we-want-to-see-your-shelfies But what about all you other martial arts bibliophiles? What do your bookshelves look like, and what do they tell us? If I get the chance I'll snap a...
