New Schedule and Location for 2016

...

What have you bought lately?

Every so often I put a call out to my readers to help me out here on my blog.  I try to keep this to a minimum because I don't want to seem needy, but I do need you, Dear Reader.  Today I need you to help me a little bit with the focus of my blog as it related to advertisements.  I need to know what products you value most so I can sell advertising space most efficiently.  All it takes is for you to leave me a comment and answer one question:
.
Tell me about the last 2-3 things that you have purchased or thought about purchasing related to your martial arts practice.

  1. Don't need to buy much, not really. Just bought a couple of inconsequential uniform items to wear at association seminars--not that I ever get to go, but hope springs eternal. I'd like to buy a nice, tapered, hickory jo from Kingfisher Woodworks, but I'm still saving my nickels. I'd like to complete my set of Seiyu Oyata's videotapes, and someone--got 'im bookmarked somewhere--sells what looks like(if his Youtube clips are any indication) a really interesting DVD on Chito-Ryu Sanchin.

    Other than that, I honestly don't know that I haven't got it all... :)

  3. Oddly enough, my recent purchases include a hickory jo and bokken from Kingfisher Woodworks! Also, a few Judo and Aikido books, and my most recently, a throwing/grappling dummy.

  4. Oh well, I bought some fabric, a book of quilting patterns and techniques, and a few yards of fabric.

    Oh wait, you said related to my martial arts practise?

    Um. A gi. Oh, and a support bandages to wrap my wrist when I was having some tendonitis type issues. I also got Nick Lowry's book. That's pretty much it. I don't need much. Except more fabric. But that's got nothing to do with Aikido.

    yes. I'm in a silly mood. Probably because I'm so exhausted. Feel free to just ignore me.

  5. 5 of the Masterclass judo books, the 2007 Judo World Championship DVD, and Igor Yakimov's three DVD sets on Russian Sambo.

  6. I haven't bought many books or videos recently. I had to purchase some additional training items for my son's Kung Fu Panda birthday party, but aside from that I've got most of what I need. My gi is getting a little worse for wear - though some might like that look. I like the rising sun brand - but check out that price! I'll need a new gi soon. Colin

  7. I mainly buy books, videos, and certain clothing items. On the latter they are usually for training but I can see some people wanting just for fun t-shirts.

  8. I have not purchased anything recently, but I would say that I'm most interested in gi, gear such as gloves, etc., and books. Books are pretty important, actually.

  9. Hmm...I haven't bought anything too recently, unless you count school t-shirts. My current personal collection includes my dobok, a pair of bahng mahng ees, my sparring gear (foam helmet, chest protector, hand- and foot-guards, mouthguard), a pair of boxing gloves, two pairs of fingerless kickboxing gloves, an elbow brace, various clothing and a large duffel bag to haul it all around. Oh, and I have a standing heavy bag in my garage, too.

  11. I just bought a gi from tozando and a gi from hsu.

    I really like the seersucker gi from tozando.

  12. I pretty much only buy gis. One of the things I like about BJJ is that there isn't a lot to buy.

    Oh, anti germ stuff.
