PSA for Most CPS Members

The part of the church where the silliest things happen. Conversations that sound like they belong in the youth room will be moved here.

Old fArts indeed!

An utterly unnecessary and ill-founded slur, sir.
Were you anywhere near here I would challenge you to a duel at dawn with walking canes.

I may be old, but my fArts are fresh as a daisy.
I make a new batch every day.

And I rather suspect this is true of my colleagues here as well.

You are the first person I have ever seen bring up bartitsu in conversation. I thought only Holmesians (and not all of them) and jujutsuka (and not all of them) had ever heard of it.

Have you studied it? Could be rather practical. I'm also fascinated by savate.

Bartitsu? No. I belong to one of the organizations that came out of Taika Seiyu Oyata's RyuTe Renmei after his death. But being a martial artist and a Holmesian, both in a small way, it was somewhat inevitable that I look into bartitsu at least to the extent of watching a few Youtube videos. My opinion, based on the admittedly little I've seen: you would be just as well served by learning some basic Danzan-Ryu jujutsu and Doyle clan stick fighting, both of which are probably more accessible. No particular opinion on la savate.

Okinawa came to us; Taika immigrated in the 70s and died several years ago, a Christian and very proud American citizen. Umbrella? Perhaps. Almost everywhere I go, I carry a peculiar cane that I inherited from my late teacher (one of Taika's students, one accepted into Shin Shu Ho). Should you be interested, you'll find that many hanbo techniques are well suited for the cane.

Good luck with that.

Sir drax showed up this morning, snowshoe shod as advised.
We met on the dueling green (formerly the Turtle Lake Casting Club practice field), now the dueling white, at dawn.

Stared each other down.

Drax plunged his cane dagger into the snow covered ground.
I attempted to fire my shotshell cane into the air, but it failed to fire; instead, I flung it into the weeds.

We walked off the field, arms over each other’s back, to my office where we shared a tin of Presbyterian Mixture and debated the merits and pitfalls of aging.

A splendid time.

The young (35) professional who hired me to assist with her house-cleaning business has refrained from calling me an "old fArt."

She has, however, given me the moniker of "ice age mammal."
