OmnutiaFirst step to rejoining

I’ve inquired at a place in Halifax (uk) and think I might be able to attend. It will be good to get back into shape and have something energetic to round the week off with. 7 years ago

YanocchiKatsumushi - the bug that doesn't quit

Okay, that’s not really what it means… katsu means win, mushi means bug. 勝虫 <-katsumushi It’s another word for dragonfly in Japan. 蜻蛉 <-tonbo (the more common word for dragonfly) Dragonflies are considered a symbol of strength and victory. I’ve always liked them, even before I knew that, but it just makes me like them more. Maybe it’s lucky.

Another interesting thing I learned is that dragonflies are a symbol for people who have survived annorexia. Quite the connection. I wonder if it’s a coincedence? 8 years ago

YanocchiTeh shame...

I took up kendo over a year ago with some friends who learned it on exchange in Japan. I practiced 4 times every week with the we-wish-we-were-a-club-so-we-can-get-money-from-the-University and at least twice a week on my own. I got strong, had the callouses, and I felt better than I think I had ever felt in my life. Then I injured my wrist during practice. I took two weeks off and was back with a vengance.

Then my knee went out. Just said “I’m done, let me know when you stop doing things that hurt and then we’ll talk.” After I slowed down I just couldn’t get started again.

I want to do kendo again: for my health, for my soul, for myself. 8 years ago
