The autumn leaves are falling like rain. Although my neighbors are all barbarians and you, you are a thousand miles away, there are always two cups at my table.

T’ang Dynasty poem

Ten thousand flowers in spring, the moon in autumn, a cool breeze in summer, snow in winter. If your mind isn't clouded by unnecessary things, this is the best season of your life.

Fighting Black Kings

In 1975, several Americans trained to take part in the First World Kyokushin Karate Tournament in Japan. This was documented in a classic film entitled The Fighting Black Kings. It is available on Youtube in it's entirety right here.

Below is the commercial for the film.

Great stuff. I've seen excerpts before and if I weren't on the clock I'd watch the whole thing right now.
