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.

A Martial Arts Giant: Donn Draeger

The late Donn Draeger was a giant in bringing Japanese martial arts to the west. He was doing mixed martial arts: judo, karate, kenjutsu, jujutsu etc., before MMA was cool.

Black Belt magazine did a very nice job with his biography and accomplishments in a two part article.

Part 1 is here and Part 2 is there.
