liesl becomes a samurai

liesl’s high school education continues to be oddly wonderful. today, she starts, for four consecutive monday afternoons, learning kendo from the top kendo (artist? practitioner? performer?) in san diego. they say it’s all about respect and harmony and self-control and all kinds of other really good stuff. but, still, it’s samurai sword fighting!

btw, her class had an overnight metalsmithing field trip this past week. she came home with a couple minor burns, but learned how to forge iron.

    Oh, sorry – not a caption contest! LOL ;)

  2. Marko,

    A week ago or so you posted about the open source. I tried to contribute with some ideas. Will you be continuing the conversation more or are you still waiting for more participants.

    Thanks for all you do.

    ps Glad to see they are wearing helmets. I had a bad Kendo Stick blow to the head injury once.

  3. thanks, kevin – i just saw your comment, and commented back.

    as for the helmets — well, that’s just a kendo pic i pulled off google images!
