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.

Nito Shinkage Ryu Kusarigama Jutsu

The Kusarigama is a sort of one hand sickle with a chain and either a blade or metal ball on the end. For safety's sake, in this video, the chain and ball had been replaced by a cord an soft ball.

Many years ago, I remembered my first exposure to Japanese martial arts through a 1960's book on tbe sickle and the chain, w/ black and white pictures.

Being a neophyte at that time, I was fascinated by that book.
