Well, just like riding a bike, you never completely forget and your body will remember. Hopefully you'll be able to find a dojo within a reasonable distance from you. Definitely glad you're back though, I think the guys have been getting a little soft in the threads lately!
Glad to be back! Indeed made quite a few moves. Gonna try and kick start Kendo & Iaido again. Practiced for about a year and never tested. I've got lots of catching up to do!
Glad to see you back! From your post it sounds like you've moved?
No problem feel free to post as much as you want
And I checked out the second link, nice fittings! I wish that I would be in Japan sometime soon but chances of that happening are severly slim. But I'll keep my fingers crossed!
Not to keep flooding your visitor messages but I tried one of those links again and I think this time it should work.
On a side note, and continuing with the tiger themed items, if you can make it to Japan and get your hands on a Noshyudo iaito, they've got some classy tiger themed fittings you might enjoy.
I really like the handpainted one. Though if I was using that for a tenegui I would be afraid it would wear off. And the link of the search results didn't work.
Did a little searching by typing in Japanese and found this, this, this if you're willing to spend a lot of money for a hand painted one, this, this one if you don't mind a dragon too, and this is a list of tiger related results from the first shop. Stopped there after I got too distracted by all the other things that I suddenly want!
Thanks for the links! I checked out both of those already and I'm not seeing much of what I'm looking for with them. Maybe because I'm not a big fan of yellow. :P And tigers happen to have that yellow to them...oh the irony!
Found a couple tenugui with tigers on them. The first one may be a lion actually but not quite sure (second from the top, right column). The second one is definitely tigers but just a lot of small ones (second from the top, left column).
*Gulp!* I'd better get sandan soon then! Need a bit more of a buffer between us in shiai!
