Catching UP

Over the course of the last two months, I have been a nauty nauty boy and not blogging like I should. This was primarily due to a couple trips I took as well as a lack of time to properly sort through my photos. While I always carry a camera with me, it is sometimes necessary to get a sighted friend or family member’s aid when selecting what photos to upload to the blog.

The year long course at the International Budo University has officially ended and I now find myself back Stateside. This is not to say that the Tales of the Iron Goat have ended, however. New places mean new dojos—or, in some cases, returning to old dojos—and I look forward to beginning a more serious study of Brazilian Jiu Jitsu as well as continuing with Daitoryu and Aikido.
Before I begin with tales from my training in Michigan, however, there are many tales from Japan left to be told. In the coming week or two I will be posting about:

-Graduation from the Kokusai Budo Daigaku
-My thoughts and opinions of the year long, budo specialization course
-more details on how to find the newaza Kenkyukai (newaza research association) in Tokyo
-the 24th annual International Budo Seminar held in Katsuura
-some farewell-training sessions at both the Kodokan and IBU
-and some cultural and historical trips we took over the last couple months.

I apologize most sincerely for the extended absence over the last two months, but please join me now as I continue my studies of budo in a few of its many forms.
