to everyone else in terms of character, heart and integrity.

Talking about some VERY experienced and lovingly-used floggers.
Presenting them to our brother Travis, who earned them
by introducing hundreds of folks to flogging, done right.

Sir David demonstrates his Technical Poi skills with fiber-optic flame whips.
The flame whips are presented as a token of my esteem.
