It all started with a phone call.
When I emailed Mr. Aoki, head of butterfly-stroke inc. and a longtime friend, I mentioned that my son was so into Kami-Robo fighters that I felt compelled to make him a wrestling ring. I attached a picture of my handy work, and received a quick reply, asking if he could post the picture on his website. It seemed fun, so I agreed. A few days later, he called, saying "It looks very well made. Can you write up a set of instructions on how to build it to include on the home page?" Thinking it would be a fun challenge, I agreed.
I'm sure there are many fathers out there with sons, just like mine, whining, "Make me a ring! Make me a ring!" This project is dedicated to those dads, as well as fans with fighters, but no ring. Imagining how Mr. Yasui makes a ring, I take you step-by-step through the instructions. In the end, all Kami-Robo will have a place to fight
The ring I made for my son.
Next time, you'll get a list of the things you need to build the ring.
