    Hi All,

    My name's Matt and I just joined the forum and thought I would post an intro.
    I'll rip this straight from the sticky.

    What art do you do? Currently Karate, but over the years I've also dabbled in internal kung fu (tai chi, xing yi, and ba gua) and some external styles as well (jow ga, ngo cho).

    What grade are you? Yudansha (Seeing as karate is my main staple, I'll only list that).

    Where are you? Melbourne Australia

    What other hobbies do you have?, motorbikes, spirits (whisky, cognac and rum mostly).

    Interested in getting involved in the forums and would be keen to meet other people from Melbourne Australia who have a passion for martial arts.

    ah Im eastern suburbs. I wanted to ask you if you would be interested in perhaps starting up an open martial arts meetup once a month, where we can all get together, meet new ppl maybe do some sparring against different styles. and would you know anyone else that might be interested in something like this?

    mftan, you'll need a few more posts under your belt before the PM service is activated.

    I am Kyoshin, live in Perth. I just joined Martial Art classes at Shobukan Martial Art. I think in this world its important for self-defence, especially for girls. So everyone must join Martial Art.
