    I got a jojutsu DVD set and 2 more Dave Lowry books (Traditions and Persimmon Wind). Non-MA, XM radio for the car for my long commute to work. A traffic channel is probably worth the subscription alone.

    I got a flannel shirt from my kids. And from the wife I got a gift certificate for 6 half hour private lessons with my Instructor. This is a good thing as I am sure I will need to use at lest one in learning Long form 1 (:

    You will like Long Form 1 it is a great form, and pretty simple to learn if you take it into context. It is short form with punches, then short form one opposite side with triple block, followed by and isolation set of blocks and punches.

    I have had 2 christmas and I am missing my third at the wife's mother. So far I have recieved a table saw from my mom, the Garh Brooks box set from the wife and lots of gift certificates. Right now I am getting the gift I wanted most of all, a quiet house so I can relax.

    Martial art related gifts....lets see....

    My girlfriend had a black "hoody" made for me with our schools logo on the front...that was pretty cool.

    My mom got me a really nice three sword set with a cherry wood stand. It will look reall nice on my mantel. =)

    Just because you do something one way, does not mean that everyone else does it that way, or that it is even the correct way.

    No MA stuff, but tones of other stuff.

    My best friend got me a Randy Orton thermal

    Gram M. got me a ton of Eeyore-related stuff. Two PJ sets, slippers, a shirt, a plushie, and slippers. Everytime she seems him, she buys him for me LOL. She also got me a Red dragon statue with dragon scenes painted in the wings. An Unbreakable Goblet set, so the cats can't break em. A sweater with a "spirit horse" design and matching socks...I had wanted them when I got to pick out stuff out of a calendar, but didn't want to make her spend a lot of money...so I not only got the wolf shirt I picked out, but she got the horse stuff too lol.

    Lots of other stuff from her, but those were the best.

    My dad gave me 100$ in Walmart cards lol My mom got me cash, which was spent in a week mostly...Two runs at Media Play and needing a new truck battery ate that right up.

    ..and from myself, third row seats to the Smackdown taping this thursday. XD XMAS isn't quite over for me, just yet!

    I had to work on XMAS day and boy, it was INSANE! We were like the only thing open besides gas stations!!! People had been lining up an hour before the store opened!!! @_@

    Hope everyone had a good holiday!

    So I guess we'll see you on Smackdown! then? You should make a "KenpoTalk.Com" sign to waive around for the cameras!

    I don't suppose you get NWA-TNA up there do you? That's where the Dudleys, Christian, and Rhino went.... amongst others. Great 'rasslin though. heh..

    Even with water in them they have a tendency to "move around." I found sand seems to work better...for some reason, perhaps density? LOL.

    I have one de-funct wavemaster in storage. It had a very small crack in the base that allowed water and some sand to dribble out even after I tried to seal it. I'm considering pouring some quick-crete in it and then adding the water. I hope it doesn't expand too much and crack the base further...Oh well, it's not doing us any good in storage so I'll give it a try. If it works, I may convert all our free-standing bags....including BOB. =)
