Welcome, Chad.


Im David, I don't know martial arts yet... But i have made it my prime goal in life to master 5 martial arts and kendo.

Master just one and you'll know them all.
Always the man in whom thought thrusts ahead of thought, allows the goal to move far off.

I'm Karl314285. Just jumped in and never introduced myself, sorry so rude. Well I'm mid 40's, cant count stint with Master Ed Mally Judo age 10-12. Went to Univ of Florida in Gainesville, chem eng dropout(bad move) to BA in ...Philosophy (bad move). Dont want to discuss Tai Chi time$$$$, fell off bike and my friend Ron said we should learn to roll, joined Cuong-Nhu karate and stayed, lots. Wanted to learn Judo (again) Master Dong said too soon (actually "man who chase two rabbits no eat dinner"), asked again after shodan, permission granted provided I still teach and not Judo, "Aikido Master on 5th ave,go there" Sensei Minoru Oshima), so it sounds like all I did was work out but I was Bartending for a living(as a Philosophy major can do), workout, lady friends abound, beer, ah to be 20ish. nuf for now, just hoping to converse with others in MA, as girlfriend and her family dont like what has occupied half my life.
do not try to spork the post, for that is impossible, only realize there is no post to spork

Hi again, (if anyone reads this what is the 'signature' and as I have dain bramage, how do i attach a photo?)
*I tend to be verbose so initial introduce self has gaps and stops early. I was laconic once so little more intro for those who care.
*As a Bartender 1/2 my regulars were Law enforcement (A mix of all up to, but excluding, the then Chief Of GPD), Firefighters. The other half, well everyone was off duty (usually) so my 60 ft long bar was like Casablanca, truce zone. Why mention this, well when I first walked into Oshima Sensei dojo, theres the Deputy Chief of Police and a detective, some SWAT. In the Cuong-Nhu Dojo several of my instructors were also LEO, most were ex-military Vietnam era.
*This leads up to the beauty of having the Deputy Chief of Police suss up my character via dedication and attitude in training...My first invitation to closed training (SWAT only, kinda like they got free ammo to practice, everyone else on their own dime), empty hand PP control tactics, After surviving 4days w/o complaint I was accepted and offered more invitations (usually involving lingering pain, esp as non LEO I was not allowed to cuff "read I'm your Huckleberry", OW).
*During the serial killings here in g'vill in the 1990ish time, the now former Dep Chief of GPD, J. Michael Jones subcontracted me to help give free seminars on Safety and SD, over several weeks ~ 2000+ residents were "introduced" to alien concepts like lock you doors (I found out wearing the Big Man full contact armor helps, unless the Lady had prior training, OW).
*So from age 17 to 30 Tai Chi, Cuong-Nhu, Aikido and assorted intense seminars with GPD SWAT (most of whom began to retire after the serial killings). Then I had to wander as a Nuclear med Tech.Nuf, y'all prob skip over my posts anyhoo,cant blame ya
