Brazilian Unicycling Association established!

Hi all,

I have some good news. After a dinner lasting six hours in which I explained
what unicycling is about to a an audience of seven in Sao Paulo (where I am on
a lecture tour) we decided to officially launch Brazilian Unicycling Association,
in Portuguese Associacao Brasileira de Monociclismo (ABM).

The president will be Masao Yumiketa (, who will also be
involved in manufacturing unicycles in Brazil. He, his wife and his son all ride.
It started 14 years ago after Unicon IV when I went to Brazil and taught his son
Tadashi Yumiketa to ride.

As a first step, the principal of the Oshiman school will start a unicycling
program in Sao Paulo. I will give a demo there and teach two teacehsr how to
ride and how to teach.

More later. In the menatime,
