My martial arts background When I first set up this MySpace page and profile, I would have never expected that my background in the martial arts would garner so much attention from other folks. I figured the

poker and watch topics would easily be the most discussed and/or asked about. However, that is not the case! I am getting more and more questions via PM about my martial arts background. To make things a little easier for me, I have pulled out some bio information about myself from a website I developed when I was still actively teaching and running a school. Hopefully this will answer most of the questions that folks will have.
