Kabuto Cutting

While I'm not entirely sure about the quality of the blade or kabuto used in this video, I do find the display interesting. Watch and enjoy. For those of you interested in learning more about this practice, I believe it's called Kabutowari.

Keikogi Review


So, last night I wore a sample keikogi that I'll be selling at SNEMAS.Com and found it to be a good, quality gi for kenjutsu practice. I ordered a size five as my sample, and at 6'0" I found the gi a tad large for my 160 pounds. Otherwise I'm extremely please with my selection in my newest supplier/

My new Website

I'm in the process of setting up a new martial arts supply website at South New England Martial Arts Supply dot Com. So far I have some uniforms for aikido and ken jutsu, Cas Hanwei blades, and accessories on the site for sale. Feel free to check out the site and let me know what you think.

This weekend I started putting together some products for my soon to be built martial arts supply website. And on that note, here's an image of the keikogi I'm excited to be offering for kenjutsu and iaido practice. The keikogi features an extra long cut and no side vents, making it the perfect choice for any art where a saya is placed thru the obi.

Eco Friendly Water Bottles

You like water, right? So you must like bringing water to the dojo, right? Now's the time to invest in a more eco friendly water bottle for your dojo time, like the stainless steel canteen water bottles shown above. They last almost forever, can obviously be refilled and aren't an oil bi-product. So, do your part today and pick up your eco bottle today.

Website Update!

Normally I like to keep my martial arts activities separate from my business, but this week I setup a websites for senior members of the ryu which I belong. Now I remember why I normally do mix my activities. After I coded out the website and updated the name server settings at Godaddy, my client (the senior members of my ryu) experienced severe email difficulties.

So, to make a long story short, if you are setting up a website on a previously registered domain name double check to make sure that no emails are connected to said domain before you update any settings. The results could be "unfortunate".


I have made a bit of head way on this project and things seem to be moving along towards setting up a site with a new domain name. Consequently, I've also picked up work from another dojo member as well, so maybe I was initially wrong about mixing business with "dojo" business. We'll see.
