I dont really know what to say, but just before keiko Suzuki Sensei came to me with a present!

I honestly felt a stab of pain taking off my Dublin Kendo Kobukai zekken, but they went to the trouble of buying one for me!
I feel very happy and hope to do it as much justice as I can!

Also, the fell I got the gyaku do on got even tonight! but in a good natured 15 minute long kind of way. I was EXHAUSTED! Kicked 7 shades of shite out of me, and got two lovely kaeshi do. He then went on to tell me twice or three times that it was 2-1 to him on the do count!

Tonights practice was definatly the hardest, I was wrecked, couldnt do a thing!
