In General An Obituary for a Well-loved Dogi Entry Tools Rate This Entry
  #206 New 04-21-2006 10:23 AM
It is with great sorrow that I bid farewell to a faithful, old friend. Around 19:45 last night, my favourite dogi met with his untimely demise during a well-played round of Randori in which he was grabbed Katadori and could finally bear the strain of past years no longer. Choosing to sacrifice his own life to save me, he let his arm give way to allow me a dashing escape from the foul clutches of my ukes. He has served me well for over three years (including during the past year of nearly daily practice) and the comfort he has provided --- as well as the fact that he was the only dogi in the dojo without a brand --- will be greatly missed. He will be temporarily resurrected tonight with duct tape for one last hurrah and then will sadly be replaced with another very soon.

May he rest in peace.
