It has come to this... I need some advice from those living in Japan on how to deal with getting your stolen stuff back in the dojo.
My bogu bag was been stolen, and my bokutou. I don't give a damn about thebogu bag, but the bokutou was my sensei's. He gave it to me when he moved, it was his first bokutou, he used it to pass his sho-dan exam. it's the oldest, rattiest looking bokutou you've ever seen, but it has nice balance, and it isn't heavy like some poorly made bokutou.
at any rate, it was taken. not only was it stolen, it was stolen from the women's locker room, and i found it in a rack, with someone else's name on it. a guy's name in fact.
how do i go about getting it back? I've explained in no uncertain terms that my bokutou has been misappropriated, everyone knows it isn't where it is supposed to be, but noone is volunteering to give it back to me.
itook it up the ass over the bogu bag, because it's replaceable, but the bokutou is a totally different matter!

Just steal it back!
And then buy a new one and use the new one when you go to keiko.
