Because the regular Match Director decided at the last minute that he wanted to go see Hank Williams Jr. - I’ve got to MD the Hartland IDPA match this weekend. I’m also going to miss most of the Highland Games this weekend out in Waukesha – so I’m doubly bummed.
Apparently Ninjas are everywhere and we just don’t realize it. I got the below e-mail from a co-worker who’s apparently ass deep into the shadow art – I was itching to go check out all the weirdoes that’ll be walking around wearing those shoes with the little toes built in (like the ninjas all sport in the movies). Maybe watch some humorous weapon disarming techniques and the obligatory “taking on of multiple opponents” demonstration, ya know, stuff like that.
So anyways, if somebody could go and write up a quick review I’d really appreciate it! Information follows:
