    “The proof of the pudding is in the eating.”

    We took part in the KobudōSai in the Martial Arts Hall today. Proudly I showed them my latest creations. Three people stepped forwards but no-one said anything. They each produced Hayago that they had made, far better than mine!

    “Does anyone want to borrow one for their Ōzutsu?” I asked around the room, in general.
    (We were to load and fire in front of the judges.) Mr T raised his hand. Later he returned it with thanks. “It worked well”, he said.

      So you are now prepared for serious field action Piers!
      You can look forward to the third wave from the Chinese mainlands, with all your stuff working well.......

        Hmmm... Uwe, for many years I have been prepared for an attack from the north of a certain nearby peninsula. All the guns will be loaded and lying in order on the tatami mats as the enemy tries to sneak up the drive. I am not sure that I could deal with the whole of China too!

        Just give em’ a broadside and then go at them with edged weapons. Uncle Hoo and his merry men will fold at the first sound of the horogai

        Hmmm... having seen some of the handiwork of our matchlock group I decided to take the large hayago a step further. Spot the difference.
