hi dont feel like you are the only rookie i was training from books and dvds for about five years now im not that great at it but i think i have potential mabey.
the greatness of fightingarts.com allows evan the rookies like me to chat about experiances and to get help.

I think it would be a good idea to have a forum about the greatness of this site
ha ha ha ha ha ha how do you like me now
