Re: DAI KEKON RYU - Tamishigiri at its best !!

she, obviously, has more skills than you since you couldn't get away. that means her woman-fu beats out your daitoryu. good form, poor techniques. you supposed to take the top off and save it for next year, then split it down the middle and send me a chunk. sheesshh.. do i have to tell you how to do everything?!!!

Does cutting the cake this way mean everyone gets a bigger slice of cake?

Howard,

I seem to remember Okamoto sensei saying he wouldn't give you your godan until you got married. I guess you can get that godan now

Congrats!

It's not just dyslexia behind the common typo of marital arts instead of martial arts . . .

Congratulations, Howard.

Don't be fooled guys. It is OBVIOUSLY a stunt double! (Just look carefully . . . he's svelte, devilishly handsome, and not wearing sweats . . . dead give away!) The bride is beautiful of course!

Re: DAI KEKON RYU - Tamishigiri at its best !!

I still cannot figure out how you did it.
Thankfully there are some very beautiful and kindly women who simply remain very poor judges of character.

Where are you going next month........
Remind me to explain the value of "husband points" to you. They are a very rare and cherished commodity that work wonders.

Congratulations bud.

I might have to brush up on my Japanese a little for that one, but I'm sure the conversation will go great!

Jeremy,

Thanks, but I was really looking for a technical discussion on the cut.

Any help would be appreciated
