    Thanks for the article! Honda has been a skater whose performances I have been enjoying for years. Even when he has not totally succeeded. His presentation is really good, and the skating looks very effortless, and he always gives me the impressiion that he is enjoying of being on the ice.

    Honda Finds Second Home In Canada

    Paula:

    I really like Takeshi. Heck, he has been in Canada so long he might as well take out his citizenship and skate for Canada! We could use him! I always look forward to seeing him skate. Go Takeshi!

    Maybe it's just me, but I really expected a "break out" season for Honda last season, and he didn't seem to have one. I'll look forward to seeing what the new season brings for him.

    Nice article

    I have a soft spot for Takeshi... I don't always get as excited for his skating as I do for others (ie jumping off the couch and yelling at the television when Plush skates, lol...) but I admire his jumping and determination. Hope next season is good to him!

    I didn't think one had to spend oodles of money to make it in skating. I don't do ballet, yoga or those other money consuming off-ice things either.

    I think the reason Honda can get away from not doing them is that he is musically inclined and skates from the heart.
