We stopped in Austin, Texas to see Michael Bainton, www.bakido.com. Sensei Bainton is not only a customer but has become a great friend. He treated us like gold and showed us around his famous South Austin Karate studio. It is amazing what he does with the children that go to his class'. As a matter of fact they recently won world championships in the 2002 Las Vegas tournaments. Be sure to check out his page. Michael is the first picture and the second is a good friend of Mikes. We threw knives until way past mid night, roughly 300. If you ever want to have a good time be sure to go see him. He will be having a tournament in December, knowing Mike it will be very organized and a lot of fun.
