Artisteer - Web Design Generator

Web Design Generator - Artisteer (Mac & PC) is a fun, low priced tool I used to make this and other custom WordPress based websites, including the new Savage Japan Podcast site and redesigned Savage Japan Movie Reviews site. Artisteer can also be used for general website layout, Blogger and other platforms. No programming skills required. I enjoyed using this product so much, I sought out one of their ad links to place here.

This practice area in the Kyoto Budo Center’s kyudo training facility allows students to practice and review their form before unleashing arrows on the archery range located at the other end of the dojo. (Photo #12).

There is a large mirror in this room to the right of the student that allows him to look over and check his form while practicing with a makiwara straw target and moving through the 8 steps involved in each arrow’s release.
