    Default Sort of New...

    Greetings.

    My name's Florian Lang; I was a member here for a while under the username Kihon at a time when I decided to return to kenpo training, but never really got around to it...

    I have recently begun training again, and decided to reregister because I think Internet usernames are somewhat childish, and there's no real anonymity on the net anyway. So, I'm now using my real name.

    Anyway, I suck at Kenpo, and have in the past sucked at TKD, BJJ, and Bujinkan Budo Taijutsu. There was even a brief period of sucking at Tai Chi, but that was self-taught from a book (I know, I feel like a fool whenever I think back on it). I hope to learn more about kenpo here, and maybe stop sucking at martial arts.

    Welcome to KT! Dedicate yourself and learn your basics well. Don't worry about speed that will come later, glad your training in Kenpo.

    Welcome to the best Kenpo board on the net. I'd sure be willing to bet that you are your own, worst critic...like so many others. Ease up on yourself and enjoy what you're learning...that, and a little prozac...you'll be fine.
