    Hi there! I'm Lennert (19) from Vught (the Netherlands) I'm new here, but not new to martial arts ;) I've practiced Judo for about 10 years, I don't know exactly what grade I am since I haven't done any exams in the last 2 years, I think I'm close to 1st dan though. Last 4 years I've been pretty much a freestyler, using techniques from different MA's such as karate, jiu jitsu, hapkido and tae kwon do. Maybe not what most traditional MA practitioners would like to see.. but it works for me anyway. I'm thinking of starting with aikido soon, and I've been teaching some of my best friends my style for a little while now (which is a lot of fun).

    My fav. moves other then the direct right and high kick would be:

    Kata Guruma (judo, brilliant move! very effective too)
    Hane goshi (also judo, very stylish throw)
    Tornado kick (all time fav :p )
    Hard frontal kick..

    Well, some of my other hobbies: Playing guitar, cars, mopeds(for race), writing songs/poems ;)

    That's about it I guess :)
