I thought it was great fighting against the Japanese unit, even though I did look like a porcupine after wards. I did feel the calibration was a bit higher this year as compare to last but no complaints on my part. I came home with several nice bruises and had to make some of my blows a little stouter but felt that all who I fought did so with honor. I was even stopped from taking a shot that although landed hard, it was not in the proper kill zone and the spear man refused to let me take it. I do not believe that the Japanese were targeted solely to get them. It was as Sir Jean Paul had said they were good as a unit and to take them apart before they organized again was the way to keep them as in effective as possible. All in all I had a blast and had no problems with the calibration. This of course is only my opinion.

The Glenn Abhenn Earl Marshal, Sir Rey, sent me this:
"I was standing over near the guy when he got knocked out. It was excessive
but the guy was mortafied and appologized to him then and to the marshals.
The guy was a little out of it still but was standing on his own two feet
when the guy appologized and he did answer him."
I was fighting up on the left side of the hill when this happened, and
remember the injury. It was *very* scary to watch, as we saw that the
fighter was down and not moving. I'm glad to hear that he is relatively ok,
and like the fighter, very mortified that he was hit that hard.
Now, I had the opportunity to fight against a good size unit of Japanese
guys in the "Battle of the 50" as well as the ravine battle, and can pretty
well verify that the gist was "stab the japanese quick, cause they are good
spear men" not "beat them up for not being Western European".
I save that behavior for my former squire brother, Yoshii :)
