Portfolio or something...

If facial expressions are an accurate gauge of fatigue and stress?
AAKF National Championships, 1988
We've competed in team and individual events in many AAKF National Championship tournaments since 1988. I think the photo is from the nationals one winter in Minnesota. Brrr. Gotta love that 15 minutes of fame!
Pan-American Games, Puerto Rico, 1993
Check the blow-up of this image. The Puerto Rican men's team is warming up in the arena the day before the tournament. They're doing the hardest part of a form called unsoo--a 360 jump. Beautiful. If facial expressions are an accurate gauge of local food quality? Paul is sharing his nonverbal opinion of the gourmet fare: gooeyduck.
Outside the view of the hotel and judges? That's enough necktie! Being awarded medals for some event.
Signing autographs. One South American tournament also featured several friendly marriage proposals. Something to do with blue eyes and the local economy? A few more seconds of fame, preserved by my folks.
Back to information systems... outside the library in a rural town.
Aoinagi Karate Online
My return to San Diego in 1994 was partially motivated by a desire to continue training. They allowed me to prototype web sites for the Aoinagi (not used) and the Zen Bei Butokukai.
