OMG!!!!! (No, really....!!!!!)

Pimped gi-pictures

This weeks megalomaniac

Membership to prove you are clueless, anyone?

Warning: My suggestion is below here, and may seem harsh, so if you are overly sensitive, then you should stop reading now...... (No, really, i have plans to be rather radical.......)

Ok, you were warned.......

Somebody *PLEASE* put these guys out of their misery..... Then print out these pages to use in your defence. "No, really.... the world *IS* a better place now, your honor.... And Einar and the voices inside my head told me to do it....."

And to support your noble effort, i will give you a polkadotted gi and 17th and a half dan if you can rid the world of some of these broken miserable people.....

To make sure that you get the most out of every class, make sure you prepare your feet, so that blisters and cuts dont ruin the fun of it all.

Changing floors, upping the amount of training or intensity is three ways that will adversly affect the skin of your feet.

So, how to make sure that yours stay in perfect shape?

Its all about being proactive in care. That means that you need to treat them *before* you get some problem.

Standard care:
1. Use a footfile to remove hard skin.
2. Get a good moisterizer and use it morning and night.
3. About once a month i take a long, hot footbath and then use a footrazor to remove excess skin. (Dont use the razor on dry skin cause the possibility of cutting yourself is too big)

Trainingcamp care:
1. In addtion to the normal care i add more moisterizer before and after each class.
2. Bring some sportstape. If you should be unfortunate enough to get blisters, then tape in advance if at all possible.

Einars list of readily available recommended products:

Scholl footrazor
Scholl footfile
Vaseline Intensive Care moisterizer
Nivea Bodylotion

Whichever moisturizer you choose, try to not get the ones with the most perfume. Then make a habit of preparing your feet for training. They will love you for it.....

Weeeeeee!!!! Pretty lights everywhere, days off sounds good (even though i know i will get bored) and to finish it all off, i cant wait for new years eve!!!! Icelanders go completly bananas (again), so the fireworks is really out of this world. (Niiiice, i liiiike......)

And regarding my passion: Gradings coming up, and i am confident people will do well. The gashuko with Richard Amos sensei was a huge success and the chances of him returning some time looks pretty good, too. Him and the WTKO technical director, Steve Ubl sensei, is joining us in Italy next summer. Gonna be *the* european event of the year.

All in all, things are pretty niiiice.
