More Facts:

The DSWC free newsletter is published twice a year. The colors of the DSWC are green and white, same as Dave's alma mater, Palo Alto High School.

Our logo is the figure of a samurai swordsman. It symbolizes the respect Dave had for Miyamoto Musashi (1584-1645), undefeated master swordsman. Dave found his teachings helpful in wrestling as well as in life.
