    Having done a quick google it seems variations are used in sub and pro-wresling

    Edit: and if i'd looked a bit harder I would have found this series of pics of the tec from 1/2 guard

    I love the arguments that come up on Pics of Disaster threads.

    Read this for flexibility and injury prevention, this, this and this for supplementation, this on grip conditioning, and this on staph. New: On strenght standards, relationships and structural balance. Shoulder problems? Read this.

    My crapuous vlog and my blog of training, stuff and crap. NEW: Me, Mrs. Macho and our newborn baby.

    New To Weight Training? Get the StrongLifts 5x5 program and Rippetoe's "Starting Strength, 2nd Ed". Wanna build muscle/gain weight? Check this article. My review on Tactical Nutrition here.

    The street argument is retarded. BJJ is so much overkill for the street that its ridiculous. Unless you're the idiot that picks a fight with the high school wrestling team, barring knife or gun play, the opponent shouldn't make it past double leg + ground and pound - Osiris

    No. I've had this on on order for oh... 'bout two years or so now. It's a basic shinogi-zukuri sword, but it happens to parallel my Token Mino Higo-goshirae iaito exactly.

    It's a Dguertin model based off a sword designed by Kaneuji (14th century, I think). 27.5 shaku, 11.5 inch tsuka. It's ass-ugly right now though. Black tsuba, black tsuka ito. I'm saving up for a koshirae change like I did on my last one, which is taking a bit since I can't work.

    I have an old Gen 1 or Gen 2 Bugei Bamboo in great condition. I'd love to remount it in a toppei theme but that's more money than I have, and it has no hi so it doesn't fit my iaito quite as nicely.

    You might be able to see some of her sister blades at http://www.dguertin.com. You might not. Darryl's been having some problems with his forge, but at last (long last), I've got my sword in. Once I remount it (early next year sometime) I'll post pictures.

    I've been thinking of getting a training group together around here, because there's really nothing else. There's an MMA gym about 40-50 minutes away, and the DFW Kendo Kyokai is only about 1.5 hours away. It just depends on if I ever get my courseload under control.
