#52070 - 01/08/05 01:57 PM An introducton

I have tried posting this before without success. My computer skills are limited. Perhaps it will work this time.

My name is Page and I have been lurking and checking in on this forum for almost a year. Now that things are settling I would like to become a member and participate in some of the discussion.

I am a physician by profession. For the past 5 years I have been practicing Emergency Medicine and Primary Care in remote and underserved areas. I have amassed a wealth of wonderful stories and many wonderful friends from all over the world.

As a child I dabbled in the martial arts, while moving from place to place. Kaju Kenpo, judo, boxing, aikido; all studied with intensity however the durations were very short.

In 1990 I had the excellent fortune of meeting my current teacher, mentor and friend. For going on 15 years now, I have been trying to learn the true spirit of Matsumura Seito.

I was elated to find some Matsumura Seito practitioners on this forum and I look forward to a meaningful exchange. Having said that, I am fully aware that there are other talented practitioners of other valuable arts here. I have gained extremely valuable insights from many on this forum: Victor Smith, Multiverse(strongly Seito), Wado Woman, Sensei Lou, Mr. V, Raul Perez, Jkogas, JohnL and many others. You all reflect various aspects of my own teacher.

I look forward to sharing ideas with all of you both publically and privately.

Wishing all of you well,

C. Page MD, MPH

P.S. A few of my staff remind me that I have been remis in not mentioning their adoration for Oldman, and the formation of the International Oldman Fan Club- 3rd World Chapter. We print out and hang many of his drawings.

Welcome. I'll look forward to your contributions. Sorry to hear about the Staff.
It's so hard to find good help these days. [IMG][/IMG]

Sharon, Raul :

Thanks for your warm welcome. I have reviewed some previous posting done by both of you and have found it to be very insightful and pleasant, often in the face of belligerance from others.

Oldman: What can I say? The staff may not have great taste, but they work really cheap!! [IMG][/IMG]

Thanks for all that you do.
