Default Les Denniston, Way of the Warrior
For all those interested, I recently watched te old BBC doc way of the warrior and wondered what the Glaswegian Les Denniston was doing now. A quick google later and I found a Kendoka's blg where he mentioned that because of his friendship with les he got to train at Kyoto Kodokan club. I decided to email this chap and ask what Les was upto. So here's the response:

Les still lives in Kyoto with his wife Hideko teaching English... or sorry that should be Scottish I guess.. ha ha.

He hasn't practiced Kendo for quite some years now, as he had to retire due to a foot injury, although he religiously does 1000 suburi on the roof of his apartment everyday, which caused quite a stir when George Bush visited last year, resulting in armed police and security rushing to check him out during one of his sessions.. all was ok.. just a crazy geijin.

He now occupies his time singing and playing the 'boran' in and around local hostelries in Kyoto, although he himself does not drink at all now.

I've sent him a mail telling of the interest and that he is ' a legend in his own lunchtime' so I'm waiting for the explosive reply..

Watch this space...

take care and bst rgds, Paul

That is nice and inspiring life story, I was really impressed by his time sense and how he has maintained that time punctuality. I read his article which are posted in college-paper.org reviews writing service blog and thought he must be a writer by himself. But after reading this blog post I came to know what he is.

World politics and current events are interesting to me because it allows me to see how the world is changing. I also enjoy learning about the different cultures around the world, as well as how they were formed. I think that this is important because it helps us understand each other better, which can lead to less conflict. Visit this https://secretacademy.net/ site for more knowledge. The most important part of world politics is understanding different cultures around the globe, because this will help us understand each other better and prevent conflicts from happening between groups of people.
