    I've been seeing a few people claim 2012 was also an EV/PV split in the last few days. Is that what you're implying here?

    I hear you. I've been here for almost two and a half years. Osaka takes it out of you, I think. You start missing the food you love and the same shite on the television drives you batty. I'd kill to have a tall glass of Franziskaner beer and schnitzel with real french fries again. No more sushi for a while. You know what I mean?

    By the way, I think you are right, a thread is needed.
    I'm surprised there was someone else in the Kansai area on this website. How long have you been in Nihon?

    Yeah, it will be rough trying to find a place for a good sizable throwdown. Let me ask the owner of the Kyokushin Gym near Suma beach if we could borrow some of his floor space if he won't be using it. I have a few friends in the surronding area (South African,American,British,Chinese) who'd love to come up for something like this and they all do different styles.
    If not Suma then some where close enough for all of us to meet up.

    Good to meet you! Hopefully one day we can meet up. That was actually a pretty good idea for a Kansai throwdown.

It seems to me that the Sanjuriu Martial Art is not in guestion, but, rather the character of Mr. Galt.
