Thanksgiving sales

November 27, 2014

The Japanese often talk about giving thanks, orei, or saying arigatou. Humans are emotional people and emotions easily spread, that applies to negative as well as positive emotions.

It is often times difficult to control one’s emotions without certain resources or command of the situation.

Too Much Survival in Place

I came across this from an indirect reference.

But if you want to see for yourself what internal power (gravity acceleration) is about, this might be a good opportunity. Especially if you like direct training, rather than do it yourself kits. (If you live in that area of California, although I discovered there’s no address for it, so going to find it now.)


That was for August, but it might still be good. If not and the registrations are already closed, there’s always China.

Be back either either after Ebola US is over or just as quarantine is over.

Western relationship with Japan in WWI

September 25, 2014

A connection between Britain and Japan, which probably influenced Japan’s colonial policies later. But before the bad news, there is a lot of good news concerning Britain’s focus on Eastern martial arts, especially when women got involved.

I knew of some American connection to the export of Japanese jujutsu around WWI, but this video gives a better and fuller picture of Western relations.

Some people tell me they want a regimented training course

September 25, 2014

So here is one, enjoy.

I like figuring things out for myself, of course. Then again, I also get bored very easily.

The principles outlined in the sell page rings true, although I haven’t tested the product personally. Many of the methodology reminds me of martial arts training. You know, the whole, how do you fight and test martial knowledge without people dying?

Swords and Modern Life in Thought Purity for a Politically Correct Utopia

September 21, 2014

“Another adult male joined the fray in defense of the first male victim. He was armed with a sword, and using a sword … and with the other male [was] able to subdue the two women until police arrived and took them into custody.”

Got that? A college educator with the right opinions can attack a high school student and keep her job. A corporate executive with the wrong opinions loses his for making a campaign donation. Something is very wrong here.

As the mob gleefully destroys people’s lives, its members haven’t stopped to ask themselves a basic question: What happens when they come for me? If history is any guide, that’s how these things usually end.-Kirsten Allen

Perhaps Allen needs to ask what is really wrong here with the Leftist alliance and where the real problem comes from. The mob is merely the tool, not the user or thinker behind the system or plan. She should be asking “what is really going on” not “what happens when they come for me”. Although the latter one is good too.

As for that, read the above two sword themed articles.

I have a blade, although it is about 30-40 inches in length. Is that really a knife?

Probably not if you go by that standard.

Social Conformity vs Social Violence as Rebellion tool

August 10, 2014

It’s not depressing so much as illuminating to people like me. This is the way it has always been. Some societies just have different safety valves to them.
