- As a short introduction,
I started in the SCA in -90, was the second Marshal in our group and
did some SCA spear fighting, Katori style. Then I busted my left
shoulder due to bad technique and switched to Japanese archery.
I've been practising Heki Ryu Insai Ha kyudo from -96. My shoulder is
healed now, but I'm stuck into kyudo for good. I also happen to be
the only Japanese persona here in our Barony of Aarnimetsä (Finland),
in the Kingdom of Drachenwald (Europe).
I host the website for our Company of Archers. We do the Toughest
Archery Competition in the Known Word. It is one hour shoot, in the
spirit of Sanjusangendo. Go and see the whole web site at
Projects underway range from completing 100 pine-shafted kyudo arrows
to complete do-maru and a portable Japanese tea house.
Klaus (Yep, not a Japanese name. Should I switch to Kazu San? My wife
would be certainly happy because I have so many SCA projects going on
- Did you want woodblock information? Fort Wayne public library used to have a treasure trove on the subject.

I am in search of help to locate writing on how to produce historically accurate images. From everything from the type of paper and ink, to how to make a seal, what is used as the red ink? for the seal, symbolism, etc.
