Since the Emperor declared a day of rest on today, in memory of a great man, we had a long weekend. And I spent some of it relaxing in Hoshiakari, doingin my own Kongōshu style. This is a style I have been inventing especially for people who go carousing in taverns a lot, and it is based on the Steel Road .
This means I must refresh my memory of the Steel Road, for I have not used it in some time. So I spent part of the weekend out in the yard outside my house, whirling thearound, practicing strikes and blocks.
My style is not yet ready to use… but I have definitely made some progress on it this weekend! Some day, perhaps it will be useful to others.
