I have watched Seven Samurai. It's only taken me 5 or 6 years!

Toshiro Mifune is brilliant. A bouncing bomb of a performance, it was heart rending when both he and the master swordsman die in such close succession. The younger lad was very well played as well. All doe eyed innocence and enthusiasm... Definately a good purchase. The final battle scene in the rain and mud really give it a serious jolt of realism. It must have been a nightmare for the actors.

I'm helping more with teaching at the moment. Not taking a group or anything that important (!) but just helping some of the lower grades whilst practicing. It does wonders for making you think about your Aikido! Ed is a relatively new Aikidoka of about 6 months. He's a nightmare! Will NOT move unless you really do it well. He's built like a tank and seriously shows up the holes in my technique, damn him!

I can feel the learning curve starting again though and now I have Iaido to sate my thirst for weapons work as well!

Bushido... If I could only apply it to life as well as Aikido.
