Hi Cory.

I'm a huge martial arts fan and have been solo training for about 4-5 years, but haven't made any great progress, but have earned a reputation at school as a martial artist...



Not exactly sure how that would happen.

Quote:

I learn from movies, VIDEO GAMES, suprisingly, but just for kendo which I have found is pretty accurate



I have found this also, like when I land a 15-hit combo with my 50-pound, 12 foot sword, it takes away at least half of my opponent's health points, and I'm on my way to a FATALITY.

Quote:

If shipping is a concern



No, but I have other concerns.

Quote:

I'll do my best to aid in that if anyone wishes to send anything...



You can't afford your own books, videos, or classes, but you can help pay for shipping to and from you?

Quote:

also greatly interested in Japanese culture and architecture, if that...even...yeah... But seriously



Not really sure where that came from...even...yeah...but seriously...

Quote:

any aid in my training would be greatly appreciated




That's an intersting proposal, my suggestion would be to find a qualified instructor in your area, good luck.
