    Hi folks,

    I'm Void. As the name might suggest I'm a karateka of about 13 years, currently ranked at 3rd dan.

    I tend to lurk a lot so apologies if I don't dive into every thread going but I do look forward to chatting with you all.

    Okinawan Tode (or Tuite, depending on how you spell it), with roots in Shuri (I think though I'll be honest my history is incredibly rusty).

    Welcome on board! 13 seems awfully young to be a 3rd dan - how long have you been training? Guessing you must have started very young indeed?

    I think they meant "training for 13 years".

    Ah! That makes more sense! I was feeling very old!

    I think you're probably right. Most thirteen year olds don't describe themselves as being 'about' thirteen years old. They know exactly how old they are. It's only when you get to my age that you have to estimate, or count back.
