Hi, Danny! It was nice to meet you in person at the DKMS!
Over to your question. I dont think Im qualified to answer it but dont forget the spine and the elbowes, that seem to be a frequent source for the taijustu of soke and the shihans.

Maybe spine and torso are the same in this context, I dont know. Any other thoughts?

I think that it has been discoverd in recent years that too much water can be dangerous. Many people have taken to drinking water or soft drinks ALL the time, e.g. people have a glas of water (or a bottle of water, which is popular in Sweden, even though we have excelent water in our taps) or a soda can at their desk and sip frome it constantly. I think this can be dangerous as it can lower the sodium levels in your blood, and also can have other bad effects.

I think moderation is good in all things, you should neither have too much or too little to drink. Here is a link to a site about too much water for athletes, I don´t know if it´s any good, since I only looked at it briefly, but I´m sure you can judge for your selfs.

Interesting, MWDAndy, thanks for the input!
Incedently my Shidoshi teaches Kihon Happo the same as you do, and also lays a big emphasis on Sanshin no Kata, perhaps even more so, than on Kihon Happo.

Here is just a thought, could it be that "Happo" in "Kihon Happo" is like "Juppo" (10 ways)in "Juppo Sessho" and "Roppo" (6 ways) in "Roppo Kuji". That is, not meaning eight ways (or ten ways and six ways), specificaly, but more every way or all ways? What are your thoughts of this interpretation?

p

just realised that what they should do is take up another non-sport self defense class or real combat training...yes fair point...don't mind me, i'm full of opening the old mouth without thinking first...


I to open my mouth too fast... The real issue her is not what she said about her Karate, it´s why she held a self-defence class in the first place

weird...


Maybe she was making the point that her Karate is not for people wanting to use it in a street fight. Her Karate could be useful when they need it, i.e. in the ring (it is a sport after all)... It could be that she is being honest, and in my oppinion that is a good way to keep students ...

Very entertaining! They were very good, but who are the persons performing? What was the context of the performance? Maybe someone who can read Japanese can enlighten the rest of us?

It may have been this site: http://sarcasm.fanfic.org/hakamapattern.html or this:
http://www.dementia.org/~djl/sca/japanese/patterns.html
I saved four homepages on my computer at the time and I´m not sure exactly which one I ended up using, I think I may have combined several. However I noticed that some of the pages aren´t up and running any more, so if you can´t find what you need in patterns and mesurments using Google, you can PM me and I´ll mail you the files that are stored on my computer. I´m sure, however, that if you put some effort in to it you will be able to find equal or better pages on the internet your self...

Good luck!

/Micke

P.S. Be sure to put enough fabric in the pleats (is that right? I mean the folds...) especialy, and in the Hakama in general, you will have to use more fabric than you think... Also a good idea is to do a "trail run". I made a prototyp, using an old sheet to see whether my pattern and mesurments where good or not. D.S.

[I have now edited this post several times since I keep remembering more and more, about my hakama project ]

I made my own hakama when we did Takagi Yoshin Ryû, it wasn´t too hard, I found a pattern on the internet somewhere and bought some nice fabric, it turned out pretty good.
