    Hey guys, I've been collecting a small library of PDF files that I find online of various martial arts.
    I hope to build onto this as I go. Sometimes I just get into a mood of looking for these things.

    Here's the link to the shared google drive:
    Library - Google Drive

    I try to make sure that I only get PDFs that are public domain, but let me know if it's not and I'll remove it.
    Also let me know if you know where I can go to expand on this folder.

    I'm curious, what kinds of files are you gathering? (I haven't yet been to peruse the list, so I don't know if it's easy to tell or not.)

    Are you gathering curricula? School rules? Or what?

    Right now it's a few manuals and diagrams from karate, kenjutsu, aikido, etc, with some Ashida Kim thrown in there.

    I'm interested in gathering as much as I can from as many different places. Found a few videos I'll add later too.

    There's not enough that I feel needs categorisation, but it's a work in progress.

    Why you include stuff from Ashida Kim in a collection of files related to Japanese martial arts?

    I'm a big fan of comedy.

    Though you can't discount the 1% of his work that is factual or practical. There's a lesson to learn from everything imo.

    Even if it isn't strictly Japanese, I've always kept my eggs with the dairy.

    That's an interesting expression, I have no idea what it means!

    It's because eggs are usually categorised as a dairy product despite the obvious. Just my occupation as a chef showing through :p

    Just meaning to say that Ashida Kim probably may not be strictly associated with Japanese martial arts, but I think they can share the same shelf for now ;)

    That will be why I didn't understand it, eggs here aren't sold with dairy products so didn't associate the two. I also eat kosher so eggs are pareve not dairy.

    In the US, eggs are almost invariably right next to (or even within) the dairy case. Most likely this started because that's what was refrigerated.

    We don't refrigerate eggs, don't have to as they aren't processed the same way as eggs in the US. The eggs in the local supermarket here are next to the breads not in a fridge, just out.

    I’m not entirely certain it’s necessary in the US. Might be - I’ve just never bothered to question it.

    Just wanted to say I've added a few things.
    Some books in regards to Miyamoto Musashi and a few videos.
    Also renamed a lot of the files and organized them into folders.

    It is something we've found out recently due to certain events going on here and the chances of trade deals with the US. We like our chickens vaccinated against salmonella and the less intensive farming we have.

    We didn't always refrigerate eggs back East. Here, we do in the summer because the temperature in the house during afternoon hours gets near a hundred. (over 37 Celsius)

    Tempted to rename this thread to include "General Egg chat" :rolleyes:
    Apparently the Japanese started using eggs a long たまご

    On topic, if anyone knows where I can find more PDFs, let me know and I can sift through and maybe build on this little project.

    I found this a few days ago, it seems to be a pretty good source for free, public domain pdfs. They're already organized quite nicely, too. Ignore the Ashida Kim material. https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/1zSo9iTljqtVq5bumctItuFXBFhkq5KAb

    They keep longer cooled. The egg cannot continue to grow. We have raised our own all my life. I have cracked more than a few very red eggs. Not pretty.

    They would have to cycle off the shelves faster. Probably a sign of smaller, locally owned markets. Commercial chickens in the U.S. are vaccinated for more than just salmonella. Buyers can find true free range chicken with a little effort. All of our free range but they do get scratch which is frowned on by true free range folks. If you don't know scratch is essentially corn meal.
    The eggs are refrigerated to that they will keep longer. No other reason.

    What is preferred to feed them over scratch?

    Earthworms, slugs, insects, grass, vegetables, berries, weeds, flowers ( marigolds make the yolks yellower).


    Your commercial eggs are washed though meaning they have to be kept in the fridge, that's why they are illegal in the UK and the EU, we can't import them.
