    You've got to look after your knees!
    Considered in the abstract the boxing ring is an altar of sorts, one of those legendary spaces where the laws of a nation are suspended: inside the ropes, during an officially regulated three-minute round, a man may be killed by his opponent's hands but he cannot be legally murdered. Boxing inhabits a sacred space predating civilization; or, to use D.H. Lawrence's phrase, before God was love. If it suggests a savage ceremony or a rite of atonement it also suggests the futility of such gestures. For what possible atonement is the fight waged if it must shortly be waged again... and again? The boxing match is the very image, the more terrifying for being so stylized, of mankind's collective aggression; its ongoing historical madness.

    Did it, perhaps, come from one of these?



    If so then you only have a small part of a large puzzle and there is still much work to be done.

    The game is afoot!

    LOL, Thanks all.

    So far apparently no right answers.

    I have been furnished withy a morsel of additional info:

    Everyone who participated was given one of these by the sensei, & shown how to use it to improve their sword skills
    Those who attended now claim to be skilled in its use.


    When life gives you lemons... BLOOD FOR THE BLOOD GOD!!

    Are you sure it wasn't a carpet fitters seminar?

    Google is useless so i can only assume that they have all sewn "Welcome" into it and made it part of their home entering ceremony.

    Are you supposed to throw it into the air and neatly slice it in two as it falls?

    Perhaps to reveal a fortune-cookie-like note of wisdom?

    Is it one of these fabric pieces?


    They attach them to Chinese swords, for reasons that differ depending on who you ask, including:
    -distracting the opponent from the blade itself
    -counterbalancing the weapon
    -having a cleaning rag always available for the blade
    -ID badge by color

    Just to buck the trend, I'm going to give a serious try at it:

    Grab it by the edge, and flap it up and down to develop grip/forearms?
