Since your new here i'll be nice and explain how things work.
You, being the "master" you are, are going to be asked a series of questions, just as all the "master" before you who have come here offering to help
us. Your only job at this point will be to answer the questions DIRECTLY
. I'll even go so far as to tell you what you should NOT do during this interaction. The first thing you shouldn't do is avoid or ignore the questions, this will only make you look bad and throw your credibility out the window.
Secondly you shouldn't fly off the handle and start talking trash, cursing, committing personal attacks or breaking any of the forum rules in response to these questions. This will only get you banned. Thirdly, don't lie. The handful of people who still pay attention to this section are actually pretty skilled practitioners and know quite a bit about what they are doing. There are more than likely 3-5 members here who may have very well been training longer than you have been alive. Additionally YOU do not dictate who posts here or what they post, that is my job.
As for the reason behind these questions it's simple. If you intend to help
people or give them training tips then i would like to know your background. Like i said before, i ask these same general questions of all the new people who come here to enlighten us. These questions will give me an idea of where you are coming from and will tell me where you are going.
1. What training background do you have?
2. Is your training and knowledge of the material come strictly from home study?
3. How long have you been training and how often?
4. What else have you studied?
5. Why does your profile say you’re in Ohio but your IP says you’re in Michigan?
I hope you actually want to be a useful member of this forum and not give me a reason to send you on your way. You might learn something if you stay.
