First of all, read the FAQ, particularly the part about not using the abbreviation "jap."

My guess is that Mizuno refers not to a place but to the large sporting goods company of that name.

arigatou for the reply, I thought so too when I searched for the word Mizuno but does 'x' stand for the word 'at'?

In this case I think it's closer to "with" or "and" or even "in conjunction with" :mrgreen: .

I believe you are 100% correct Mike-san.

The Mizuno Volleyball page contains the exact text from the OP.

Mizuno make great running shoes as does that other Japanese company "anima sana in corpore sano" :)
Don't complain to me that people kick you when you're down. It's your own fault for lying there
