    Default I'm Back!!!

    Hello All!!

    I'm not really new - I used to post on Martial Talk a few years ago but I got turned off by all the flame wars in the kem/npo area. I asked a few questions or went to threads that asked them and never saw answers only arguments.

    Been reading some threads for about a week and it seems Kenpotalk is a good thing because it gives areas to different types of kem/npo and now people can ask questions about particular styles without having to filter thru detractors per say. Kudos!

    I'm looking forward to some meaningful discussion with all of you.

    Hi Don,

    With rare exception, this forum is very helpful and supportive. It's well-moderated and people keep the flames in their bellies or in the fireplace. They don't usually make it onto the forum.

    Welcome back.

    I'm the exception, and pretty rare, I'm told. But welcome back to the (un)real world!

    Gakkusei,
    Right back at you! I've heard it said that a Black Belt is only a white belt that got dirty from training. This could be good because it's evidence we've learned something - the problem lies in when we don't have room on our belt to get new dirt. The emptiness/openness of the white belt is in my opinion the true spirit of Martial Arts. Hence, why I chose Kosho Gakkusei. Where are you located in PA??
