    Congrats on the bb! Have you attended any throwdowns?

    Congratulations!

    Now grow your hair into a ponytail and start coaching in the UFC.

    Thanks for the well wishes.
    Regarding the magic pants, I've been wearing them for the last year or so in our dojo. I had a brief escape from their clutches for the grading but they've pulled me back in.
    I haven't been to any throwdowns yet Pat, I might travel over to one of the UK ones now that my brother will be living there.
    Only two and a half days of summer school left before the real world tries to muscle in on training time again. I'm off for a bit to eat and a nap before we start again.

    If I ever put a sig line on my posts it'll probably have to be "is more bunny than you"

    Well done captain. Congratulations.

    For the record, a Hakama doesn't qualify as chaps until you cut the arse-cheeks out of them. That day will come though!

    Congrats! Seriously!

    I still do Aikijutsu a bit (brown belt) among my other things and sometimes wonder if I'll ever actually get that Shodon. Too many katas (jo, boken) to remember for the amount of time which I have to do it.
