Hi folks, I have just registered. I use the name Joe on the web, but my name is Alexander. I am in Japan on a working holiday from Australia, and found a job at established badminton store and web shop Shuttle House http://shuttle-house.com/en/ in Osaka Yonex, Mizuno, Gosen etc., if it's coded JP we have it. My background is in bicycle mechanics and retail, (and I have a degree in Japanese) but I figured I'd try something new while I was here. The guys here have taken me under their wing, and taught me stringing and a bunch of other new things about the sport, and I'm looking forward to getting involved while I have such a good opportunity. I most look forward to picking brains on stringing, attitudes towards products in the market, and gaining a global perspective on the sport and the market. Yoroshiku onegaishimasu!!
