I don't really expect any replies to this, I just wanted everyone reading this to know that there is a new guy here. I have been studying karate for five years. Ju Jitsu has recently been added to my dojo. We go to camps all the time to learn from other sensei. There is another guy in my school who is a black belt in Judo (now a Blue belt in our style as well) and he is helping us with our throws. I am also studing Judo at college this fall and plan to continue my studies after I graduate. I also study weapons(yes I put my name in for the weapons forum). I am also attempting to understand Zen. I am very excited about the possibilities. Thank you if you took the time to read this. I look forward to many great exchanges...
