Hey everyone. I'm new here, but I am known on other martial art boards (e-budo and kendo-world, mainly). I am 26 years old and working in the IT field as a systems administrator. As far as martial arts, I currently practice Muso Jikiden Eishin Ryu under Dave Green, 5th dan CKF, and have studied under him for about 5 years. I have also practiced Hyoho Niten Ichi Ryu under Iwami Toshio soke and Hyakutake Colin, and hope on day to stay a while in Japan to learn more from them. For my other interests, I like video games, poker and computer stuff in general. I watch subbed anime fresh from Japan less than a day after it's out there. I'm still struggling to learn Japanese, but I have enough materials to help me out for a while. I enjoy reading scifi/fantasy books, and I'm currently slogging through the wheel of time series in preparation for next month's release. I really must enjoy reading, because this is the 5th time or so I reread the series, and I have very few books that I've only read once. Well, that's me in a few short paragraphs. I hope I won't make too much trouble on the boards! Dozo yoroshiku!
