Have you posted any comments in a while...or did I miss some? Anyway, how are you doing? Tort-Speed
Hello - Haven't seem (or did I miss them?) you posting for a while. You doing OK?
Hi-Not posted for a while? You doin' OK?
Looks you figured out how to load an avatar. Looks classy, classic and nice. Congrats.
Hi and sorry I haven't a clue how to load an avatar, sorry. What I did was email a photo to KWF Fonz who made it the appropriate size. Then I think I followed someone's directions, like Neil Genzwill Sensei's (sorry, I can't spell names either); or maybe I somehow sent it/Fonz sent it to this Forum. I think there is a place at the bottom of the first, main page,
where we can make a comment about using the Forum - maybe I contacted someone through that.... Virtually computer illiterate, am I.
I guess I'm too picky but on KWF we aren't all Gents. Anyway, hang in there and you may enjoy through all the tough parts, Kendo. I recall the worst things in the beginning was foot blisters and, soon after, getting hit very hard on the right hand ...
which still happens after these 20+ years. Which also means that learning the basics is all-important: had I done that well,
my ready position ("kamae") and hitting speed/style may have today, reduced the frequency of getting hit on the "kote."
As it is, running my fingers over the top of my right wrist, there is pain from a week ago's "keiko"...with a nice guy who was not a beginner (who may really whack).
P.S. NO need to reply, just please keep in mind the above comments which may help you.

Yes, that's my son.
