You know if you've been around long time martial artists, they all have great tales to tell. Personal histories, special events, tragedies and great joys that are always worth listening too.

If we go backwards to the early days of the martial arts, when they were all passed by oral tradition, those stories were very important ways to bind the past to the present martial artist.

Well with the thousands of stories on the net, I offer everyone a chance to share them with us all.

I only request we remain polite and not tell stories to hurt others. Yes pain can be instructive, but lets share in a positive manner.
