    Hello everybody,

    I've loved martial arts since I was a child, so at the age of 11 I started practicing Shotokan Karate Do and few years later added Iaidō (this is where my love for Japanese sword began). Due to health problems I was forced to quit at the age of 15 with 4th Kyu.

    After a long 16 years without martial arts, my mind finally found peace when I started practicing Goju Ryu Karate Do (IOGKF). Nearly two years ago I have also started practicing Matayoshi Kobudo, but not very regularly.

    I consider Goju Ryu my main style now with 1st Kyu.

    Welcome. I have a lot of respect for the Goju-Ryu style.

    Welcome Sett - It seems Goju is a great art for reeling in ex-practitioners (it hooked me after an 18 year absence, and now I couldn't imagine life without it...)
