The "Classical Budoka" blog by Wayne Muromoto


This was brought to my attention recently:

http://classicbudoka.wordpress.com/ authored by Wayne Muromoto.

If you don't know him, I lifted his bio from Koryu.com

Wayne Muromoto

Wayne Muromoto is publisher of Furyu: the Budo Journal and Furyu Online. He began his martial arts training some twenty-five years ago, and has spent several years studying Urasenke chanoyu (tea ceremony) and various martial arts in Japan. He is a direct student of Ono Yotaro, headmaster of Bitchu-den Takeuchi-ryu and holds the rank of yondan (shihandai or official representative instructor under the old system) as well as the chu-mokuroku in that school. He is also a student of Ohmori Maso in Muso Jikiden Eishin-ryu iaijutsu. Muromoto has experience in a wide variety of martial arts including judo, aikido, karatedo, t'ai chi ch'uan, jodo, and kendo, and holds the rank of sandan from the Zen Nihon Kendo Federation in iaido. Presently he is active as a leader of the Hawaii Martial Arts Club.
Muromoto has an MFA in Fine Arts from the University of Hawaii and a BA in Japanese literature and language. He is an art instructor and chair of the visual arts program at Mid-Pacific Institute.
Wayne's writing style is humorous and informative. It speaks from experience and a "love for what he loves to do". IMHO Furyu was *the best* martial arts mag (JMA oriented) around. This is an extension of that original work and it has the same level of content.

Check it out of you have time!

Hello Russ
Spot on with Wayne and Furyu. Make yourself at home. There is a whole contigent of Koryu folks here who know Wayne and each other-It's just never talked about.
I'll hop on over and read Wayne again. I hope he landed on his feet!
