Yes I am looking for serious study.
ARMA does have a couple of groups here, one in NYC and one in Brooklyn.
However, they are both a bit far for me, as I am poor and don't want to pay out the wazoo for gas.
I do know about a group supported by USFA, and I am going to meet them next week, I don't think it's going to go too far though as they are about sport fencing.
I was thinking, how much would it hurt to get a waster to a new tattoo...
