    Gentlemen,

    In the PRLog postings there appears to be a typo in the Shutokukan Dojo start times that I suspect is being propagated through cut n' paste. The PRLog schedule...

    Breathe.

    At the risk of spitting into the wind here, I'd like to make a single over-simplified point about the accuracy of period art.
