    Default Hello to all #2, I just joined KenpoTalk...

    Ok, let me try this again, with a correctly spelled title...

    Hi everybody,

    I just joined this forum and wanted to say hello.

    I started my Martial Arts training at the end of 1980 at Richard Lee's East West Karate Kung Fu (BokFuDo) School in Walnut Creek, CA, and was very seriously into it for about 6-7 years. Then career and life got in the way, so from around 1987 through 2004 my training was sporadic at best. Finally, at the end of 2004 (after planting some seeds in their brains for a few years), my kids told me that they were interested in trying martial arts. They were 7 and 9 at the time. I found a kenpo school in my area, took them to their first couple of lesson, and the writing was on the wall... the bug bit me again , and I've been at it pretty seriously since. During this time, I got my black belt in kenpo, and decided to go back to my original school and pursue a black belt in BokFuDo.

    I train and teach at the same school as "jdinca", who's posted on this site previously.

    Later,
    Gene.
