Many years ago, after I moved back to Perth after spending a year in Sydney, I came to train with Kaneda, and discovered that during my absence, he had formed Rebel and re-formed the mugairyu training group. I was happy to be training again - martial arts has always been a core part of me, and training with Kaneda in particular, has shaped me into the person I am today. I do so sorely miss it when I am apart.

I returned, and every time I came to training, Andy, oh so happy Andy, would always fling his arms into the air and run over to me, greeting me with enthusiasm and a joyous, "JP-san!" I cannot express just how much good that did for my self esteem. He gave me these words - "outlandish and ridiculous hand waves". I cannot think of these words without recalling his exuberance and the joy it brought me back then, and still does now.






The start of this project.
