Hey everyone!

I'm pretty much new to this website. I've been in the MAs since the age of 6. I study in the arts of Traditional Karate. I have also studied Taekwondo, and Jeet Kune Do.

I had an injury from basketball that set me back a year and a half. I've been training like crazy to be back at 110% for the past 8 months. I've got some tournaments coming up as well.

So, just wanted to introduce myself among the fellow artists. Feel free to email and chat if you wish. I will be doing the same!

Thanks!

- Zak "Jin"

I train in Shito-Ryu, and Shotokan. Shito-Ryu since I started, and Shotokan for about 5 years now. Excluding the year and a half I was on the injured list. lol.

Since I train in 2 different styles of Karate, I simply say Traditional.

What about you guys?

Oh, and I'm a novice in Wado kai, I also do north american kickboxing (as aposed to muay thai) there is a large number of people with different styles here.
