I like Neko or the CAT as a teenager I liked Yamaguchi and the big 200lb Frenchmen or Dutchmen (been 20 yrs I forgot) Karateka labeled the Cat.

One of my Sensei use to call me Fancy Dancer, he thought my h2h and nunchuka techniques were pretty but not powerful enough.

He just liked vicious techniques, sometimes form = power. He had good form but his face would be all twisted up like he was trying kill something. Show Intent he would say.

I don't have a nickname. Don't really care for them myself and no has even tried to give me one. Does that mean I don't come across as unique? Or maybe more like a hidden and stealthy characteristics.

"Joshua" please.

Perhaps not but it is only my first name and I don't give out much beyond that. I was thinking more along the lines of no nickname because, I am too stealthy to give people something to remark on.

Here's my list. 1992 we're at Golden Bell, Colorado training for a week with Grandmaster Kise Fusei. Chewing on the same food everyday was getting a little bland. I joked, "I'm sneaking off the mountain for some McDonalds," I was branded Sensei Happy Meal the rest of the camp.

My nicknames for folks at the dojo include: Private Pyle (Full Metal Jacket), the Old Grey Mare, Supremo Emo, No Neck and Light Brown.

Biscuit, Grog, Grasshopper, Kwan, FP, and Razor of course. The stories are varied and cover more than three decades so I won't trouble you with too much detail.

Biscuit was a gift from my brother referring to the back of my head after a very short hair cut one time. He said the back of my head looked like... you guessed it.

Grog was back in the Tim Allen days when every guy was grunting like a caveman. A couple of friends and I were all given cavemen names. Don't know why. I was a sensitive, understanding, feeling kind of guy back then...yea, well, kind of, lol.

Grasshopper, Kwan, and Razor(foot) are all MA related from people I trained with or who knew I trained.

And my personal favorite, FP, came from some one near and dear to my heart who still calls me that to this day but only when I get a bit too sarcastic, lol.
