April 2009 Archives

Tomorrow, Black Belt magazine's June 2009 issue will be on the newsstands. Believe it or not, columnist Mark Jacobs interviewed us for his column, Far East. Here's what the BB web site says about it: "The paths of two students of the traditional Japanese arts converge, leading to marital harmony and the passing on of ancient values. Screenplay by Mark Jacobs." I haven't seen it yet, so am risking a bit of embarrassment by announcing it beforehand, but hey, it is sure to be something different!

To commemorate our "15 minutes of fame," I've uploaded our very first Youtube video. It's from the Nihon Kobudo Shinkokai's annual demonstration at the Nippon Budokan in 1997. Meik & I are presenting Toda Buko-ryu's yari awase set. Here's the link: Toda-ha Buko-ryu naginatajutsu. Enjoy!
