The autumn leaves are falling like rain. Although my neighbors are all barbarians and you, you are a thousand miles away, there are always two cups at my table.
T’ang Dynasty poem
Ten thousand flowers in spring, the moon in autumn, a cool breeze in summer, snow in winter. If your mind isn't clouded by unnecessary things, this is the best season of your life.

Masters Kendo Match
Probably the oldest Kendoka of the 112th Enbu Taikai: Ota (Age: 102) and
Takasaki (Age: 93). Ota-Sensei is one the very very few ones (only
one?) who holds the title of Hanshi despite being 'only' 7th Dan. The
requirement for Hanshi nowadays is minimum 8th Dan.
