Editor’s Note: We have finished the first year of our new workflow: constant, rapid release of articles, followed by an annual traditional anthology of the Kiai Echo. This year, the anthology will be provided, as a hard copy, to those who registered for the AJJF National Convention by March 1, 2018. After convention it will be available to everyone as a PDF download, and as a pay-for-print-and-mail option. New rapid release articles  will be linked below as they become available:
