    Where did everyone go?

    It's been years since I've been here, where is everyone?

    I had a set of modern day swords until Tom Guesz ran off with them.

    I am considering either purchasing an antique Wakizashi or perhaps building a modern day set again.

    BUt alas nobody is here, Fred Lohman passed, and so it seems the world got smaller.


    True Karate-do is this: that in daily life, one's mind and body be trained and developed in a spirit of humility; and that in critical times, one be devoted utterly to the cause of justice.

    Fred Lohman's gone, too? Jeez...

    I expect we're in that vicious cycle where fewer people posting leads to members checking in less often, which leads to even fewer posts. I've been dropping by maybe three, four times a year for the past couple years. I gather this is the state of many forums nowadays thanks to social media.
    They groan'd, they stirr'd, they all uprose,
    Ne spake, ne mov'd their eyes:
    It had been strange, even in a dream
    To have seen those dead men rise.

    Checking in and saying Hi. I’ve been training Sabre these days and my iai has taken a side line. Glad SFI is still around as well as the sword community.
