New website coming up

We are sloowly building our own website. The makiwara project (see last post) will of course take precedence, so don't expect the website to be ready anytime soon. Here is a preview.

Makiwara coming up

Since there are no trees around the dojo, we are planning to plant a makiwara on the side lawn by this summer. Grant has got his whipper snipper out and given the grass a good chop. Next step: choosing the wood, and in what shape. We do plenty of shoulder strikes, so the default plank-shaped board may need a rethink. If you got any suggestion, let us know.
