I may be going to Orlando again this year

Yesterday the owners and instructors at DMW Martial Arts, Dan and Marcia, invited me to attend the Martial Arts Supper Show in Orlando, Florida, this July. I am genuinely surprised by this, and flattered. I think it is pretty cool to be included as a teaching instructor at the school. Another instructor and friend, Leni, was invited too. This is an opportunity to view martial arts as a business and get some specialized training. I have yet to discuss the details of the trip, what training my instructors wish me to attend and weather Karen can attend any of the events (I really hope she will come too). I am excited to see what is offered. I really would love to get some basics on weapons I have not studied yet, teaching techniques and meet some people.

I would also like to see what merchandise is available in the martial arts industry, particularly in the mid-range cost and quality. For example, many of the weapons I have seen in catalogs are either cheep in cost and quality or outrageously expensive and unknown quality (presumably high quality). What I would love access to is the ‘middle class’ product line; that is, the goods of fortune in moderation. I want, for example, a line of weapons, like a set of Kamas, which are durable and sturdy at a moderate cost. I want a practice and demo weapon that is not light as a feather and breaks easily like many I have used and seen. I do not want cool glitz that flakes of in practice.

This will be a fun trip. Depending on how much stuff I need to pack I may not bring my laptop, although I hope that I can so I can report items of interest daily. We shall see. First I need to work out the details and actually go on the trip.
