Shinden Fudo Ryu - Gekkan

Just thought I'd add this. I saw the clip tonight, and thought it well-done. I like how Sean isn't blasting in with a kick to the uke; instead, he just places his leg there, almost like an obstacle, which folds the uke over. Very smooth.

Sean Askew performs Gekkan from the Bujinkan Dojo's Shinden Fudo Ryu Jutaijutsu.

The Philosophical Zombie

Dude! I am so excited to have ordered Th e Undead and Philosophy! (Which you can order from my bookstore, Diesel, A Bookstore).

Kasey Silem Mohammad is not only a great poet and thinker, but is one of the foremost zombieologists / necrophycists in the U.S.--perhaps the world. When the zombies invade from below (or perhaps from the deeps of space) I could do no better than to have Kasey by my side. Barring the actual person, The Undead and Philosophy might be next best for its assuredly insightful illumination of the undead existential-state.
