Taka does not remember his first event except that it was in the Barony of Tyr Ysgithr. And it was very nearly his last. But he persisted at fighter practices until he was stationed in Hawai’i. Around deployments, he made several overtures to the canton to no avail. Lacking other outlet, he took up kendo and taught rapier to a handful of others soldiers who were interested.<br>

Upon returning to Atenveldt in A.S. XLI (C.E. 2006), Taka increased his activity, having realized how much he enjoyed the camaraderie; he become more involved with the Barony March of Mons Tonitrus, attending many local events and branching out every so often. In time, he joined the Guard of Phelan and Amira, attending his first Coronation Court. And was bored nearly to tears. He did meet many other like-minded SCAdians (not the bored part—the fighting and historical study parts) and has since made life-long friendships.<br>
