Ladies and Gentlemen (and Marius),
Apologies for the lack of cover. Tawara Sensei keeps on telling me about what great training they are having under Yahara Sensei, but I just now have to take a break. So what I will be doing is taking the best from the rest. My backup plan was Pieter, but he's now buried in physics and charms of the orient...so backup plan 3 is to start to get Ibuki Tawara to fill in.
There are a number of things that I would like to post, including Mike Dukas Sensei having a frank and fair discussion with a large and taciturn pile of masonry. So all yee who enter here, don't quite abandon hope yet...
