It’s been a while since I’ve put aught here, and for good reason. Not that I don’t have anything to say (I can always think of something to say!) but I’ve simply been just too dam busy. Really.

Obviously, I have continued the practise, and at good pace too. I’m getting 3 a week with the security company, and then another one somewhere, usually either the ‘kan or at Shinjuku. In the run up to the WKC I am really starting to see the benefits in this ramp up. I feel good: fast, light and dynamic. And some of my old techniques are returning from the grave to back me up too, which is a sure sign that things are on the up and up.

So, that’s fairly normal, right? Well, in addition to that……I’ve been studying hard for the worst timed exams in the history of academia. The WKC is at the end of this month, right? Well my first (of three this year) exam was yesterday (confident that I did enough to pass….) and I have another 2 at the end of next week. 2 weeks after that is Italy.

Between kendo and study, I have had literally no free time for the past 6 weeks. I only even remembered that I wrote a blog a few days ago!

At least I’m generally happy with both though. That’s something!
