Think Nice Thoughts
Above is my Sensei.
This is me 2nd Dan iaido, a very young me.
I am incredibly lucky to have training with a top master, Yamaguchi Sensei.
I will never forget my training, started when I sat down in his living room.We drank green tea. That was part of the training.
At the end after 2 hours training with the sword. Then I had to fold my hakama (skirt) into a shape of a butterfly.
Why do I include this personal information?
This journey, is about me, so future generations, can read. A travelogue. Its also for you my Supertoopers, who gave me the chance to make it happen. I wanted warts and all. To be public in my experience. Brave, maybe.
There is one thing I wanted to say to all my enemies.
Its something I cannot forget, the wife of Yamaguchi wrote down.
